Elevate your trip to North Iceland with a relaxing geothermal bathing experience by booking this entrance ticket to the Forest Lagoon. Travelers and locals who want to dip in infinity pools while surrounded by breathtaking landscapes will enjoy the excellent amenities and facilities that the Forest Lagoon offers.

Your refreshing experience opens as you arrive at the Forest Lagoon, located two miles (3.5 kilometers) and just a few minute drive from Akureyri. The geothermal spa is easy to find using online maps and GPS as it lies along the famous Route 1 or Ring Road of Iceland.

The Forest Lagoon is an up-and-coming attraction that opened in 2022. It sits on a vast space measuring 13,993 square feet (1,300 square meters) in the Vadlaskogur forest near Akureyri. Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by a beautiful sight of lush vegetation, with thousands of birch and pine trees covering the area.

Your admission ticket to the Forest Lagoon gives you access to the whole property and its modern facilities. It features infinity pools, a sauna, swim-up bars, changing rooms, and a cold tub to immerse yourself in a haven of tranquility.

You can spend much of your time in the attraction dipping in the two infinity pools. The bigger pool measures 5,704 square feet (530 square meters) and maintains a soothing 37 C (98.6 F) temperature throughout the year. 

Meanwhile, the smaller pool stands at 570 square feet (53 square meters) at a warmer 40 C (104 F).

The lagoons' waters, which originate from a nearby mountain, are rich in minerals that are good for your skin. Geothermal heat from deep within the Earth warms these pools to maintain their comfortable temperatures.

While enjoying a soak in the pools or the cold tub, guests can enjoy a panoramic view of the Vadlaskogur forest and the sea. In front of the complex lies the Eyjafjordur fjord, Iceland's longest fjord. 

After making the most of your time thermal bathing, you can cap off your Forest Lagoon experience with a visit to its on-site restaurant called Forest Bistro. The restaurant serves light meals and brunches, including lamp soup, pizza, salad, and seafood dishes.

Whether you visit the Forest Lagoon as a standalone experience or as part of a larger North Iceland itinerary, its peaceful atmosphere ensures an intimate and unforgettable journey. This North Iceland attraction, accommodating up to 200 guests, is open daily from 10:00 am to 12:00 midnight.

Please note that this admission ticket to the Forest Lagoon gives you a day's access to its facilities. However, food and drinks are not included in the tour price. You must also bring your towel and swimsuit if you don't want to rent on-site.
