Relax at the famous Blue Lagoon and see the incredible Northern Lights, one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the world, on this tour from Reykjavik.
Blue Lagoon & Northern Lights Tour
At your selected time on the day of your excursion, we'll meet up at the selected meeting point in Reykjavik and hop aboard our bus for the 50-minute drive to the famous Blue Lagoon Spa.
This natural geothermal spa is known for its therapeutic waters and muds, and you'll get to make the most of their healing powers! Spend four delightful hours pampering your skin and contemplating the spectacular landscape that surrounds the lagoon. Relaxation in its purest form! What's more, the spa entrance includes a clay face mask that will leave your skin like new.
After this unforgettable relaxing experience, we'll return to our original departure point in Reykjavik for 7 pm or 8 pm, depending what time you started your tour. You'll then have free time before resuming the tour in search of the Northern Lights.
At the scheduled time, we'll get back on the bus and head out to find the best possible spot to watch this spectacular natural phenomenon. As our eyes adjust to the darkness around us, we'll start to see different coloured lights dance through the sky. It'll feel like you're dreaming!
We'll take the time to enjoy this unique experience and take photographs so that we'll remember it forever. The guide will help you with your camera and give you photography tips to ensure your photos look like they're taken by a professional.
Having seen the aurora borealis, we'll take you back to the meeting point.

Frequently asked questions
Q - Who can take part in this activity?
A - This activity is not recommended for pregnant women due to the high temperatures in the Blue Lagoon.
Q - What if we don't see the aurora borealis?
A - As it is a natural phenomenon, we cannot guarantee that you'll see the northern lights. In the unlikely event that you don't see the aurora borealis, we'll offer you the opportunity to do the excursion as many times as necessary before you see them during a period of two years.
Q - Why do this activity with Civitatis?
A - All Civitatis activities go through a selection process. Within our listings, you won't find two equal activities offered by different providers: we simply take the company with the best reviews and quality and stick with that one. If our users start leaving negative reviews on an activity, we understand that something is off, and we contact the provider to establish a solution. If this situation persists, we look for another company that responds to our commitment to excellence. That's why doing an activity with Civitatis means getting it right every time and ending up satisfied with the service.
