Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Absolutely amazing day, saw so many beautiful locations and learnt so much about Iceland! Our guide, Asgeir/Ice man, was so brilliant and handled the mini snow storm so well in the morning. Would thoroughly recommend to everyone!

I think our guide made our tour this special and unique. He was amazing in his story telling, in his relaxed approach; made sure we get the most out of it and showed us more sceneries because we had extra time. The secret lagoon was great , relaxed and chilled vibe.

Great Tour With a Fantastic Guide

We went on this tour despite the threat of high winds and rain, but luckily, it only rained a little throughout the day, but those winds…they were pretty severe at times. Of course, weather cannot be blamed on the tour, but my point is…you can still enjoy with not so great weather conditions. Our tour guide (Petur) was absolutely amazing, and a big part of the positive review was his insight, historical knowledge and ability to keep the tour moving at a good pace. If your worried about not having enough time at the secret lagoon…rest assured, you will want to come out of the thermal pools way before the time gets short. All in all, a great way to spend the day, and I highly recommend

Great sites. Tour Guide was so-so

Sites were excellent. Lots to see and do. Secret Lagoon was a nice addition to the traditional Golden Circle. Tour Guide could have been better - did not provide much background on Iceland or about the attractions.

This trip was beautiful. Our guide Matthew was welcoming and funny, and gave us a great overview of Icelandic history/ culture as well as brilliant tips for the rest of our stay in Iceland. It was a larger group than we were used to, and Matt was very patient. Unfortunately the Secret Lagoon portion of the trip was cancelled but we didn’t miss it, the rest of the day more than made up for it. Hard to pick a highlight but the Kerid Crater, Thingvillur and Gullfoss will stay with us forever. Great day out

I can’t say enough good things about this tour and our tour guide, Houser! We had such a great time at each stop, the food for lunch was great and Houser told us the most amazing stories of Iceland’s history. I could have listened to him all day.

The tour met with logistical problems, i.e. road closures, etc. Willy was incredibly flexible, took it in stride and made sure we saw everything we could see and added extras along the way to make of for the loss of the Kerid crater. 10 out of 10 for Willy!
