Come along for a tour of the finest sites in Iceland, along with a luxurious soak in the warm waters of Laugarvatn Fontana Spa & Wellness Center. Traverse the famous Golden Circle, with three of the most well-known sites in Icelandic history and culture: Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area, and Þingvellir National Park.
Gullfoss is one of the most powerful waterfalls in all of Europe, where huge quantities of water rush over the two-tiered falls and down into the gorge below. Geysir geothermal area is another natural wonder, full of bubbling mud pots, steaming vents and geysers which explode regularly, flinging scalding water high into the air. The most active, Strokkur erupts every 10 minutes, sending water as high as 40 m (131 feet).
Last is Þingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the world’s first parliament was founded in 930 AD. The Vikings who came here to participate in the politics of the day looked out on these same rifts, walked the gorge between the two tectonic plates, and gazed at the silvery waters of the nearby rivers and fissures which reach deep in the earth.
Relax in the natural geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana Spa & Wellness Center after such a thorough tour of the Golden Circle. After exploring so much of the South Coast, Laugarvatn Fontana Spa is the perfect way to relax and revitalise both body and mind.
For almost a century, locals in the community of Laugarvatn have been enjoying the healing powers of natural steam from a geothermal field at the edge of the lake. Built over this geothermal area, the Laugarvatn Fontana Spa & Wellness Center features geothermal steam rooms, hot pools and outdoor mineral baths and a fantastic view over the lake.
If you are there in the evening and conditions are just right, you may be able to enjoy the Technicolor dreamscape of the Northern Lights as you relax.
At Laugarvatn Fontana Spa & Wellness Center you will also find Fontana Café that offers a nice selection of healthy and locally produced delicacies and refreshments. The menu also includes soup of the day and trout from the lake which is a great idea for those that just want to enjoy the facilities without going to the baths.
Don't miss out on these essential Icelandic locations, topped off by pure relaxation in a geothermal spa. Check availability by choosing a date.
