9 Hour Minibus Tour of the Secret Lagoon & Golden Circle with Lunch Stop & Transfer from Reykjavik
This tour is the perfect combination of relaxing and exploring some of Iceland's most famous sites. After being picked up in Reykjavik in a comfortable minibus, your adventure will begin as you leave the city.
Start your day with a visit to Thingvellir National Park. 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.
Head on to witness an incredible geyser called Strokkur, which erupts every five minutes and can hurl boiling water up to 40 meters in the air.
Finally, the Gullfoss waterfall is one of the world's most beautiful waterfalls.
Once you've taken in its majesty, enjoy the landscapes of Iceland on your way to a small village called Fluðir, where the Secret Lagoon sits. Before arriving there, you will stop at Friðheimar tomato farm for lunch (not included), where you will learn how to grow vegetables thanks to geothermal energy.
Continue to the Secret Lagoon, also known as "Gamla Laugin" or “The Old Pool.” Take delight in soaking in these 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 return to the city of Reykjavik.
