The Golden Circle & the Secret Lagoon | Sightseeing & Hot-Spring Bathing

Join us for an unforgettable excursion where we top a mesmerising Golden Circle Tour off with a dip in the Secret Lagoon.

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 home of the first parliament of the nation, founded over a thousand years ago.

After exploring the national shrine of Þingvellir, we visit the Geysir geothermal area where we walk among bubbling mud pots and boiling streams while the iconic Strokkur geyser shoots fuming water 40 meters into the air. Stay back or you might get wet!

The last stop of the Golden Circle is Gullfoss, the Waterfall of Gold, whose seemingly endless power can not 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.

Our 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 degrees C (96-104 degrees F). Should you visit in the evening, you might even glimpse a view the Northern Lights as you soak away any lingering stress.

Enjoy two of the most treasured activities in Iceland, strolling the countryside and relaxing in a natural hot spring. Check the booking availability above by pressing "Choose a date."
