This tour is the perfect combination of relaxing and exploring some of Iceland's most famous sites.
Start your day with a dip in the Secret Lagoon and then continue to discover the sites of the Golden Circle.
After being picked up in Reykjavik in a comfortable minibus, your adventure will begin as you leave the city.
Enjoy the landscapes of Iceland on your way to a small village called Fluðir, where the Secret Lagoon sits. Before arriving there, you will make a stop at Urriðafoss waterfall, in the river Þjórsá. Urriðafoss is one of the most voluminous waterfalls in Iceland, although it is not the tallest.
Once you've taken in its majesty; head on to the Secret Lagoon, also known as "Gamla Laugin" or “The Old Pool”. Take delight in soaking in this natural hot springs, where the water remains a warm and comfortable temperature, between 38 and 40 degrees. Watching the steam rise in the bathing area is one of the most relaxing ways to start your day. The walking trail along the edge of the pool covers the immediate surroundings, so you will have the chance to take a close look at the bubbling geothermal area around the Lagoon. Discover the little geyser, the hot springs and the fumaroles that speak of the geothermal activity in the area.
Once you have enjoyed soaking in the healthy minerals of the pool, you will be given lunch (included in the tour price) before moving on to the Golden Circle route.
There are three main sites on the Golden Circle, all of which we will visit on this tour.
Begin with Gullfoss waterfall, one of the world's most beautiful waterfalls. Head on to witness an incredible geyser called Strokkur, which erupts every 6 minutes and can hurl boiling water up to 50 metres in the air. Finally, Thingvellir National Park awaits. Here you can witness the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates tearing apart. Thingvellir also holds significant historical importance, with many monumental events in Iceland having taken place at this location, including the founding of the national parliament (first in the world) in 930 A.D. Parliamentary sessions were held here for almost 900 years, until 1798.
After your fun-packed day, you will return to the city of Reykjavik.
