The Blue Lagoon will partially reopen on Sunday, December 17, after having been closed since November 9 due to seismic activity in the Reykjanes Peninsula. Guests are advised to familiarise themselves with the company’s travel directions, as only buses are permitted on Grindavík Road.
Only minor damages to buildings
According to an announcement released by the Blue Lagoon yesterday, starting from Sunday, December 17, the lagoon itself, the Blue Café, Lava Restaurant, and the spa facilities will reopen. Meanwhile, the Silica and Retreat hotels, along with the Moss Restaurant, will remain closed for now, with their status to be reassessed on the morning of December 21.
The announcement from the Blue Lagoon also states that its opening hours will be slightly altered: The Blue Lagoon will be open daily between 11 am to 8 PM, starting this Sunday. Guests are advised to familiarise themselves with the company’s travel directions, as only buses are allowed on Grindavík Road.
“Despite recent events, our Svartsengi facilities remain strong. Our infrastructure, encompassing pipelines, electricity, and other key components, is in excellent condition, and the buildings have sustained only minor damage.”
