Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon Tour

11 hours

Price Breakdown:


Combining the Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon, this breathtaking tour takes you on a wondrous journey through Iceland’s staggeringly raw beauty and ends with the ultimate Icelandic indulgence: a luxurious soak in a geothermal pool under the open sky. Go on a journey that brings you the experiences of walking among geologic marvels, witnessing an erupting hot spring, discovering a magnificent waterfall and unwinding in an outdoor geothermal pool.

A Historical & Geological Wonder
Þingvellir National Park is located in a rift valley where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. It is a site of great historical, geological and cultural significance and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Þingvellir is the birthplace of the Althing Iceland’s parliament founded in 930 AD where the nation’s most powerful leaders would meet to decide on legislation and carry out brutal Viking age justice.

An Awe-Inspiring Waterfall
The tour continues across an area of picturesque scenery to the mighty Gullfoss waterfall. Once there, you can take several paths around the two tiers of cascading water to explore several vantage points. Extra time is allotted at this location for a lunch break at Gullfoss Café where food is available for purchase.

Bubbling with Excitement
Next up is the home of “The Great Geysir” hot spring, which all geysers are named after. This area is an impressive collage of bubbling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and colourful algae deposits. Strokkur geyser puts on quite the show every few minutes blasting boiling water high up into the air.

The Secret Lagoon
Just off the Golden Circle is the Secret Lagoon, a spring-fed pool located near the charming village of Flúðir in South Iceland. Mineral rich geothermal waters from nearby hot springs stay at a steady temperature of 38° to 40°C, making the Secret Lagoon’s water perfect for bathing and relaxation.

Icelandic Open-Air Bathing Experience
Over the years, the Secret Lagoon, or Gamla Laugin as it was referred to by the villagers, has been part of the local culture that is keeping alive the uniquely authentic experience of Icelandic open-air geothermal bathing.

Hot Springs & Geothermal Features
The Secret Lagoon offers neat and clean locker rooms, showers and changing facilities, as well as a small bar and dining area. Boardwalks and footpaths surround the pool enable guests to explore the small hot springs and other geothermal features in the immediate area. After 3-3.5 hours of enjoying the Secret Lagoon’s miraculous waters we return to Reykjavík, rejuvenated and refreshed. And if we’re lucky, on the way home we may even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.

An Experience for the Mind, Body & Soul
While any one of these stops makes incredible images for your Instagram feed, they also all have rich histories and fascinating tales, each told with their own nuances by our knowledgeable guides. Touring the Golden Circle and soaking in the Secret Lagoon is an unforgettable way to experience Iceland’s natural wonders for your body, mind and soul.

Loved our whistle stop tour of the golden circle, our guide gave lots of extra information that we would not have found if we were travelling alone. The secret lagoon was well worth the extra money (even included a free drink)

The Golden Circle is the most seen sights package in Iceland, and it's worth seeing it even for that. Gullfoss is not the best waterfall in Iceland, but Thingvellir and the Geysir are definitely worth it. Secret Lagoon is a great end to the trip!
