Join this day tour to explore the Golden Circle and stop off at the tranquil Secret Lagoon. On this tour, you’ll get to see the famous sites of Þingvellir National Park, Geyser geothermal area and Gullfoss, whilst finishing your day of adventure bathing in the lesser-know Secret Lagoon. This tour is perfect for those wanting to explore some of Iceland’s most famous attractions and add an extra experience of relaxation.
The first stop of the Golden Circle tour is the Þingvellir National Park which is renowned for both its geological and historical significance. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is situated on the continental rift that separates the European and American tectonic plates and is home to Þingvallavatn, the largest lake in Iceland. It is also the place where Iceland's first parliament (Alþingi) was founded over a thousand years ago.
After exploring the national shrine of Þingvellir, you will visit the Geysir geothermal area where you walk among bubbling mud pots and boiling streams while the iconic Strokkur geyser shoots fuming water 40 metres into the air. Keep your finger on your camera shutter as you stand around the mighty Strokkur so you can catch the perfect shot as it spouts up every 4-8 minutes.
The last stop of the Golden Circle is Gullfoss, the Golden waterfall, whose seemingly endless power cannot only be seen but also felt. On the paved path that takes you to the cascade, you can feel the vibration of the water flooding by and taste the spray as huge gouts of mist spout into the air by the eternal churning of glacial water. Keep your eyes peeled as guests frequently get the beautiful sight of spotting a rainbow descending into the misty waters below.
Your day comes to a perfect end with a dip in the Secret Lagoon, a secluded hot spring that is located in a stunning setting in the midst of the Southern countryside. The pool is lined with natural rock, with soothing water temperatures of 36-40°C (96-104°F). This is the perfect way to end a tour with some time to relax and recuperate in some of Iceland’s natural geothermal waters.
Enjoy two of the most treasured activities in Iceland, strolling the countryside and relaxing in a natural hot spring. Check the booking availability by choosing a date and book your Golden Circle adventure.
