We arrived in Reykjavik at 630 in the morning, and stayed at the airport a bit to regroup. We had booked a pickup from the airport into downtown Reykjavik with a stop at The Blue Lagoon. This seemed like the easiest way to a) get from the airport into town, which is about a 45 minute drive, and b) to visit The Blue Lagoon. Many tour groups offer tours like this, so we picked a reputable one and got on their first pickup of the day.

The water was warm, and amazing, and super relaxing. There are also buckets scattered around with silica stuff in them which is meant to be a face mask or exfoliant. You look totally ridiculous with it on but it felt wonderful.

In November, the sun rises about 10am and sets about 5pm. So we basically got on site around sunrise. And little did we know, but that was some of the only blue sky we'd see the entire trip. I know there are hot baths all over Reykjavik, but the view of this one and the blue color just cannot be beat. It was really a great experience. I absolutely recommend a visit!
