Sightseeing & hot spring bathing | Golden Circle and the Fontana Spa

Based on 2 traveller reviews

Combine the best of both worlds by relaxing in a warm pool between stops on the Golden Circle.

Laugarvatn Fontana Geothermal Baths are situated right next to Iceland's second biggest lake, Lake Laugarvatn and right on top of a geothermal area. A visit here is the perfect way to relax and revitalise both body and mind.

Included in this tour is the Golden Circle, visiting Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir geothermal area, all incredible natural attractions in Iceland.

For almost a century locals in the community of Lake 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 features geothermal steam rooms, hot pools and outdoor mineral baths and a fantastic view over the lake.

At Laugarvatn Fontana you will find Fontana café that offers a nice selection of healthy and locally produced delicacies and refreshments. If you don't want to enter the baths then you can relax in their café and feast on the soup of the day or smoked trout from the lake.

Reviews

Great, basic tour. Wish we had more time at Fontana. They ran out of towels, so we had to wait a bit for bathrobes. Better to bring your own towels if space permits.

Had a great time! Would definitely recommend this tour!
