Secret Lagoon, Dinner Buffet & Golden Circle Bright Nights

Have you ever wanted to experience the bright nights of Iceland while dipping into a hot spring in the midst of nature? During summer the sun only sets for a few hours and the skies are delightfully lit at night, making the Icelandic bright nights a perfect opportunity to visit the Golden Circle in peace and quiet.

The first highlight of the tour is the Secret Lagoon, located in South Iceland near the village of Flúðir. The pleasantly warm open-air pool is a relaxing treat for your body and soul, rich with minerals and created from a natural hot spring.

The Secret Lagoon offers neat and clean locker rooms, showers and changing facilities, as well as a small bar and eating area. Boardwalks and footpaths surround the concrete encased pool enabling guests to explore small hot springs and geothermal features in the immediate area.

Feeling rejuvenated after the Secret Lagoon visit, you will head to the nearby restaurant of Grund for a meal. Grund is a small restaurant, renowned for their delicious light dinner buffet. There you can select from an assortment of Icelandic food; soup, bread, salads, meats and other fresh locally sourced produce.

The tour then continues into the bright and sunlit night, on to the Golden Circle, visiting Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area and Þingvellir National Park.

Gullfoss Waterfall descends from the upper part of Hvítá river cascading down two steps into a canyon and creating a powerful scenery worth experiencing first hand.

Geysir is a geothermal area full of hot springs, steam vents, geysers and sulphurous mud pots. One of the main attraction of the area is the bursting Strokkur (The Churn) which can reach up to 30 meters erupting regularly with 5-10 minute intervals.

The final visit of the tour before returning to Reykjavik will be to Þingvellir National Park known for its historical, cultural, and geological significance. It is the site of Iceland's parliament from the 10th to 18th centuries and a UNESCO world heritage site where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia split and drift apart, creating the gorge Almannagjá. Additionally, Þingvallavatn lake is a stunning feature to the area apart from being the largest of its kind in Iceland.

The tour is a great angle to the popular Golden Circle tour where the attractions are optimal to visit during the less busy hours and the landscape is draped in the beautiful twilight. A truly capturable moment!
