No trip to Iceland is complete without a trip to the iconic Blue Lagoon. And while you’ll have a great time hitting up this well-known tourist destination, I highly recommend making a night of it and staying at the Silica Hotel to get the full luxurious experience. 

The Silica Hotel is located just 10 minutes walk from the Blue Lagoon. This is perhaps the most popular attraction in Iceland. The Blue Lagoon is a large geothermal lagoon, supplied by water from the nearby geothermal power station. It contains a high density of the mineral, Silica, which gives it the milky blue colour and is where the name of the hotel was derived.

You get to experience the best of both worlds!

The Silica Hotel has it's very own private lagoon for hotel guests only. A night's stay here also includes complimentary entry to the Blue Lagoon. This is perhaps one of the most unique experiences I've come across during my travels. Wandering along the pathways which surround the hotel is very relaxing in itself, especially at sunset. The landscape is completely covered in green mossy lava fields. If you're not already convinced, here are 9 reasons why you must stay at the Silica Hotel on your next trip to Iceland.

I highly recommend planning at least one night stay at the Silica Hotel when you first arrive or just before you fly out of Iceland, as it is located very close to Keflavik International Airport. There is no better way to experience the iconic Blue Lagoon than taking your time and relaxing without the hoards of tourists.

But don't take my word for it, take a look for yourself…
