“Our facilities, including Blue Lagoon, Blue Café, the Lava and Moss restaurants, the Retreat and Silica hotels, the Retreat Spa, and our on-site store, are ready to welcome you back. “

Operating hours have been temporarily adjusted so the facilities will be open from 8:00am till 9pm, with the last possible booking at 7pm.

The Blue Lagoon added: “This reopening is a collaborative effort with local authorities, ensuring ongoing safety in light of recent seismic and volcanic events. 

“We wish to inform guests that our operational units are located within an area at risk due to seismic activity as identified by the Icelandic Meteorological Office.
