COVID-19 | Provisional restrictions

On March 13, the Icelandic government issued provisional restrictions on mass gatherings. These rules are effective March 16 and will last four weeks.

While Blue Lagoon Iceland has already taken comprehensive actions to ensure the health and safety of employees and guests during the COVID-19 outbreak, our protocols have been enhanced in accordance with the new regulations.

We have designated 13 independent guest rooms in the visitor area. Access to these indoor spaces is both limited and controlled to ensure that the number and flow of people adheres to the government’s restrictions. We have also reduced our service offerings, temporarily eliminating massage and beauty treatments.

The Blue Lagoon itself—8700 sqm of geothermal seawater—remains operational as it is relatively easy for guests to maintain 2 meters of separation in this outdoor geothermal environment. However, the flow of lagoon traffic is tightly regulated and guests are reminded of the critical importance of social distancing and habitual hand washing.

With these measures, we believe that it is possible to welcome guests in a manner that conforms to the government’s directives and preserves the health and safety of our employees and visitors.

During this time of uncertainty, your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.
