Join an unforgettable excursion where the mesmerising Golden Circle Tour is topped 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 place where Iceland's first parliament was founded over a thousand years ago.

After exploring the national shrine of Þingvellir, you will visit the Geysir geothermal area where you 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.

Your 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°C (96-104°F). 

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