Bring your bathing suit, and start with morning pickup from your Reykjavik hotel or cruise port. Then, settle into a comfortable, shared coach, and admire Iceland’s volcanic interior as you travel to the Secret Lagoon, located near Fludir in the Golden Circle area.

After time on the road, arrive and take in the fairy tale-like setting, made even more magical by the clouds of steam rising from the lagoon.

The geothermal lagoon is Iceland’s oldest swimming pool and framed by pretty countryside, geothermal hotspots, and a small geyser that spouts every few minutes. Fed by underground hot springs, the warm waters give off steam and stay at 100-104° Fahrenheit (38-40 Celsius) all year round.

Use the changing facilities, and enjoy ample time to soak in the waters, admiring the scenery as you bathe. If you’re here in winter, you may catch a display of the Northern Lights in the skies overhead as you bathe.

After two hours at the Lagoon, you embark upon the quintessential Icelandic tour to the Geysir geothermal area in the Haukadalur valley, where the Strokkur fountain geyser spouts water high into the air every few minutes, before visiting the majestic “Golden Waterfall” of Gullfoss, considered by many to be Iceland’s most beautiful waterfall.

Finally, stop at the inspiring Thingvellir National Park. Learn about the foundation of the world's oldest, and still functioning parliament, that happened here in 930AD. Then, view the meeting point of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates that are slowly pulling apart. 

After you will hop back inside a coach for the return ride to Reykjavik, where your experience ends with a drop-off at the cruise port or your central Reykjavik hotel.

Excellent tour

On time, comfortable and nice guide. The secret lagoon exceeded expectations and made our later trip to the blue lagoon seem a bit staged for tourism. Would actually do the same tour again another time of year as the scenery was stunning

What an awesome experience! I felt like we got so much more out of this tour, the crater, the lagoon, geysir, national park, and we even stopped to pet some horses! We had an absolute blast
Very enjoyable tour

4 tours in one. Volcano crators, secret lagoons, geysers and national parks. Great value and fun. The guide (David) made it so more interesting. One of the best tours we’ve ever done
Great trip

This tour was a lot of fun. It was great to see the geysir, the waterfall, and Thingvellir, and the Secret Lagoon was so relaxing! I would perhaps suggest that they put the Secret Lagoon at the end rather than at the beginning (perhaps reverse the order) as it would be nice to relax after all that walking. But it was a fantastic tour!

Quite a long journey out, but the spectacular scenery makes this easy to bear. The Secret Lagoon is pleasantly understated, basic but comfortable reception and changing facilities lead you out into the splendidly unspoilt lagoon. We were there when it opened at 10am until noon, and never did it feel busy or congested. We really enjoyed this visit, and left feeling very refreshed.

The Staff were extremely helpful from booking, changing dates and accommodating each and every request. Once in Iceland the friendliness of the tour guides and patience were amazing. I highly recommend the Secret Lagoon compared to the Blue Lagoon as it is more authentic and less expensive considering pricing of drinks, you have more time to enjoy the hot pool. Topped with the golden circle tour after, the day was magical. Great service all round, very hard to find nowadays. I will certainly do this trip again, I only wish we had more than two hours at the hot pool. I rarely give reviews, thank you for a wonderful day!
