Blue Lagoon Reopens

Vala Hafstað

The Blue Lagoon, Southwest Iceland, reopened on Saturday, June 19, after having been closed since March 23 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Welcoming the guests was especially enjoyable,” Helga Árnadóttir, CEO of marketing, tells Morgunblaðið.

The Blue Lagoon looked beautiful on Friday, for the weather couldn’t have been better. June 19th is Women’s Rights Day in Iceland, and in celebration of that, women who visited the lagoon were given special gifts.

Guests were offered a floating experience and various refreshments. “I was a beautiful day,” Helga stated, and added that guests had been pleased with what was on offer. Most of the guests were Icelanders.

“We’re not expecting nearly as many visitors this summer as we normally would at this time of year,” she added, “but there seems to be a lot of interest among Icelanders in experiencing what the Blue Lagoon has to offer.”

About 400 people visited the lagoon on Friday.

While the lagoon was closed, repairs and renovation took place. In addition to the lagoon itself, two hotels and four restaurants, located there, have reopened as well.
