How easy is it to get to the Blue Lagoon by bus from Reykjavík? How much cash do I need, and in what currency, for bus, entry, and so on?

A: Taking the bus to the Blue Lagoon is quite simple and is not a hassle at all. Most Icelanders purchase daily necessities and basically everything with cards, therefore cash should not be an issue for most tourists. Just pay at the BSÍ bus terminal in Reykjavik, and you will be on your way. However, Reykjavík Excursions/Reykjanes Express accepts all major currencies, if you prefer to pay with cash due to exchange rates or card fees.

Taking the bus will set you back 3,600 krónur, about 23 euros or $30, according to current exchange rates, for a round trip (or return) ticket. As for departure times, the bus for the Blue Lagoon leaves BSÍ every four hours, at 10 am, 2 pm, and 6 pm, while the bus from the Blue Lagoon to BSÍ leaves at 11:15 am, 3:15 pm, and 9 pm.
