Hotels at Iceland’s famous Blue Lagoon have reopened, three days after the outdoor spa started welcoming back visitors.

It is the first time all establishments at the spa in Svartsengi have been open since 9 November, when a volcanic eruption forced their closure.

Blue Lagoon Iceland said the reopening of the Silica Hotel and Retreat Hotel had been taken in ‘close collaboration’ with the Government and local authorities.

Chief Operator of Sales, Operations and Services Helga Árnadóttir said: “After three wonderful days of welcoming back our staff and day guests at the Blue Lagoon, we’re also thrilled to be able to reopen our hotels.

“We’re very appreciative of our staff who worked tirelessly to reopen our establishments, and we look forward to continuing to create moments of joy for each person who walks through our doors.” 

The Blue Lagoon, Blue Café, Lava Restaurant, Retreat Spa, Spa Restaurant, and the on-site Blue Lagoon Skincare retail store will continue to operate with slightly reduced hours. 

Local authorities and experts will continue to monitor the area and seismic activity. The reopening of the spa coincides with the construction of protective barriers around the Blue Lagoon.
