On your Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon Tour, you will experience a series of remarkable and diverse sites in the Southwest of Iceland.

Enjoy a warm and relaxing bath in the natural thermal waters of the Secret Lagoon. This landmark is a natural hot spring and the oldest swimming pool in Iceland. Followed by a visit to remarkable sites in Golden Circle - hot spring "Geysir", “Golden Waterfall” of Gullfoss, beautiful national park of Þingvellir.
Highlights
  • Let a guide take care of entrance fees on a stress-free tour
  • Enjoy a relaxing soak in the warm waters of the Secret Lagoon
  • Travel the Golden Circle route and visit geothermal attractions
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from designated points in Reykjavik
What to Expect
Your morning starts with pickup from designated locations around Reykjavik. From there, head out of the city to the Secret Lagoon, located on the famous Golden Circle route. Widely considered among Iceland’s top attractions, the Secret Lagoon is a series of heated pools and baths where the water stays at 100–104° Fahrenheit (38–40 Celsius) throughout the year. Admire sweeping views over the Icelandic countryside from the comfort of your coach and then enjoy two hours to relax at your leisure in the Secret Lagoon’s steaming pools. Afterward, travel by bus through the beautiful Haukadalur Valley, home to geothermal features, including the Strokkur geyser and Gullfoss waterfall. Tour through the Thingvellir National Park, where the mighty North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet, and listen as your guide shares the history of the world’s oldest still-functioning parliament. Then, take a seat back aboard your coach for the return journey to your drop-off point in Reykjavik.

No, there are plenty places to buy food so no need to take any with you. Good fish and chips at the secret lagoon and excellent homemade soup at the geyser.
