Is the Blue Lagoon Open in June 2024?


Update: As of June 13, the Blue Lagoon is closed due to air quality.

The most recent eruption on the Reykjanes peninsula began on May 29 and continues to be active as of the time of writing. Following advisory warnings from authorities, the Blue Lagoon was closed in the days following the eruption. After the eruption site stabilized, the Blue Lagoon reopened its doors to visitors. However, soon after, lava ran over Route 43, the road to the Blue Lagoon, forcing its temporary closure again from June 8 to 10. The Blue Lagoon briefly reopened afterwards, but as of June 13, the Blue Lagoon is closed due to poor air quality from the nearby eruption.
