Overview

If you’re short on time in Iceland, it makes sense to pack as much into any free evening you have as possible. This tour from Reykjavik does just that: combining a swim in the geothermal waters of the Secret Lagoon with an Icelandic buffet dinner and a road trip to hunt for the Northern Lights. Your experience includes transport, lagoon admission, dinner, and hotel pickup and drop-off.
  • Secret Lagoon swim, buffet dinner, and Northern Lights hunt from Reykjavik
  • Bathe in the scenic Secret Lagoon, a natural hot springs pool
  • Enjoy an Icelandic buffet dinner at a country restaurant
  • Take a road trip to chase the Northern Lights in the dark skies
  • Visit different viewpoints and with luck, observe the natural phenomenon
  • Includes air-conditioned transport, dinner, lagoon entry, and hotel pickup and drop-off
  • Drinks available to purchase with dinner, and bathing suits and towels can be rented at lagoon (own expense)
Begin your tour with a late afternoon pickup from your Reykjavik hotel or alternatively, meet up with your air-conditioned minivan or coach at a central location in the city.
Then, set off through volcanic plains, pastures, and hills to the Secret Lagoon, Iceland’s oldest swimming pool. Recently renovated but still exuding old-fashioned charm, this outdoor pool is fed by natural hot springs seeping up from the earth, creating a crystal-clear and beautifully warm natural lagoon.
On arrival, use the changing facilities to either don your own bathing suit, or rent a bathing suit and towel (both at additional cost). Then, wade into the relaxing waters and soak in the picturesque scenery as you swim.
After a while, feeling duly revitalized, hop out of the water, and change back into your clothes. Then, reconvene with your guide and vehicle, and continue to a nearby country restaurant.
Take a seat and savor an appetizing buffet dinner of traditional Icelandic dishes, with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available to purchase (own expense) with your meal.
Afterward, hop back in your vehicle, and set out on a hunt for the Northern Lights, with your guide and driver using their local knowledge to seek out this natural phenomenon.
Travel away from any urban light pollution, and keep watch for the lights overhead as you hear the science and stories behind them. Stop at the best viewpoints known to your guide, and with luck, enjoy a sighting of the luminescent ribbons moving across the sky.
As midnight approaches, arrive back in Reykjavik, where your tour ends with a drop-off at or near your hotel or at a central location.
Please note: Sightings of the Northern Lights on this tour cannot be guaranteed, and are subject to conditions on the day.

Excellant

Tour guide was friendly and had excellent local knowledge. Set expectations for the start that due to the weather would be unlikely to see the Northern Lights (had been heavy cloud all day) They still managed to get us an excellent view of them on the way back. They spotted an opening in the cloud cover pulled over and we had a fantastic view.
I would give this TEN stars if I could!

This trip from Reykjavik was awesome!! The "secret lagoon" is old-fashioned, out of the way and WAAAAY underpopulated, at least on the April evening we were there -- the 3 peeps from our tour, and one other couple in the whole (small) lagoon. We were there from 8-9pm, just enough time to get totally relaxed. No gimmicks, no swim-up bar. It was so like our old hot springs resorts in Montana. The buffet meal, 5 minutes away, was amazing. We were greeted with the dining room door opening as we drove into the parking lot. It was just the 4 of us at dinner, with the hosts not-quite hovering to make sure everything was satisfactory. All local delicacies and specialties, starting with a heavenly cream of mushroom soup (the mushroom farm a couple of miles down the road supplies all of Iceland), then our choices -- tried some of each -- of salmon 2 ways (with 2 sauces), incredibly delicious herring -- also 2 ways, with more sauces, thin-sliced smoked lamb (a Christmas dish, but brought out for guests in April!) (perfect with a big slather of Iceland butter on the 24-hour-baked in the hot ground brown bread), super fresh salad with ingredients from the local greenhouse (heated by the hot ground in the area), roasted lamb and roasted cod, both with special sauces. Let's see, was that all? A heavenly chocolate dessert was brought out on plates. OK, at that point, I said to Gulla, our awesome guide, I don't really care if we don't see the lights tonight (even though I've now been to Iceland 4 times and never seen them yet) -- this was a perfect evening. Well, we drove a few minutes to the spot Gulla had scoped out as the best possibility for a sky show, and before we even arrived, the sky was beginning to light up. We watched, standing outside for a while, and then from inside the van (BIG windows!!) when it got too cold. It went on and on. We finally left after a couple of hours, but pulled over several times on the 50-minute drive back to take more pictures and just marvel in the action above us. Gulla's MANY photos showed blazing greens and even a little red, while our eyes saw only white, but what an evening!! She said it was the best she'd seen in the past months. Gulla's enthusiastic information, stories, answers to questions about Iceland life, mythology, trolls and elves, housing costs, tax rates and many other subjects made the drive fun and educational -- she's a great teacher. This was far beyond my expectations for my arrival in Iceland
Great

The food was excellent! So fresh and well prepared; incredible assortment of seafood. The secret lagoon was a perfect; small intimate group; no more than 15 people. We felt like we had the place to ourselves. We did not see the Norther Lights and it was not fault of our guide; the weather was cloudy. Our guide went above and beyond in searching for clear spots. Highly recommend this tour!
Relaxing Evening

We enjoyed this relaxing evening. No Northern Lights, though. Actually, we were in Iceland for 10 days and never saw them, so I'm not sure how common seeing them is.
A Nice Way to Visit the Lagoon

We had an enjoyable time visiting Secret Lagoon with this tour. We definitely spent enough time there, there isn't much to do. But dinner was the highlight -- real Icelandic food cooked and served by lovely Icelanders. It was snowing the night we went so no luck with the Lights (no fault of the tour company), but our guide was soft-spoken and it was quite difficult to make out what he was saying over the PA system (this had nothing to do with his accent as when we spoke in person he was very clear).
Amazing experience

The Secret Lagoon at night was a different experience. The buffet was delightful and we did get a chance to see the northern lights.
Secret Lagoon is fab

Pickup was by small van and was on time though we had to wait outside in rain to board the larger bus. The Secret Lagoon was fabulous and not crowded. Many people didn’t shower naked before entering the pool as instructed, guess they were shy. We had plenty of time to enjoy the pool with its natural hot springs and small geyser. The buffet is a short distance from the pool. We were all seated very close together there. We were packed uncomfortably around the table. The food was good, not great and drinks were extra cost. The sky was cloudy on our night, so no northern lights were seen. Dropoff took a long time because so many people going back to different places. We arrived “home” after 1 am. The Secret Lagoon was the best part and was worth the trip for us. We didn’t visit the Blue Lagoon as it was entirely booked during all of our stay. There were not so many tourists at The Secret Lagoon.
