Food & Drinks at Sky Lagoon

By Aashima

A visit to Sky Lagoon is incomplete without a dip into Icelandic food, cuisine, and drinks.

Sipping a cold cocktail while soaking in the warm, healing geothermal water adds to the entire experience.

You will need the Sky Lagoon entry tickets to enjoy the exclusive drinks and snacks there.

You can enjoy eateries from three different sections of the popular: Smakk Bar, Sky Cafe, and Sky Lagoon Bar.

This article will tell you about Sky Lagoon’s food options and menus to help you get the most out of your trip.

Sky Lagoon Bar

A small section of the lagoon houses the swim-up Smakk Bar near the sauna entrance.

The bar is located in a rock cave, and there is some seating available, but it is often crowded during the day.

To purchase drinks, guests can use their wristbands with their credit card information saved on them.

The Sky Lagoon bar offers a variety of drinks, including draft beer, cider, juice, wine, and cocktails. 

Guests are limited to three drinks per visit, so it is recommended to save one for sunset, as the swim-up bar is a great place to enjoy a drink at sunset.

The views of the lagoon and the surrounding mountains are simply stunning.

A cocktail or glass of wine paired with the sunset and Sky Lagoon food is the perfect way to end your day.

Opening hours

The Sky Lagoon bar opens from 9 am to 11 pm, the same time as the lagoon. (Learn more about Sky Lagoon’s opening hours.)
