This is a combo tour not to be missed as not only does it combine two fantastic activities into one day but also grants an earlier admission to the lagoon than what is typically available.
The Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon are both in the same area of the south west of Iceland and as such it is very easy to create a route in which you will be able to see everything. We begin the day with our trip to the Secret Lagoon in the town of Fluðir where the warm 38-40 degree waters will rest your mind, body and soul. After a few hours relaxing here we then take you along the Golden Circle route where you will be able to see the geothermal paradise of Geysir, the magnificence of the Gullfoss waterfall and Þingvellir national park.
This combo is one of the most popular tours in Iceland and once you have been on it you will certainly understand why.
Pick-up from accommodations and special Tour Bus Stops in central Reykjavik is between 8:00 and 8:30. Then the buses meet at 10-11 Kringlan and the tour departs from there at 8:30.
Start the day with a leisurely swim in the Secret Lagoon, one of the oldest natural geothermal pools in Iceland, nestled amongst bubbling hot springs and a small erupting geyser. Steam rises from the surrounding geothermal area as you relax in the warm mineral-rich water, which holds at 38-40*C year-round.
In the Geysir geothermal area in the Haukadalur valley, Strokkur fountain geyser spouts water high into the air every few minutes. In case hunger is eating you up enjoy some traditional Icelandic food at the Glíma Geysir restaurant.
The iconic waterfall of Gullfoss, or Golden Falls, is only a 7 minutes’ drive from Geysir – located in the glacial river Hvítá. It's elegant and majestic form is like no other, where the torrential river water plummets in two steps down into a 32 meters deep canyon.
Þingvellir National Park is not only a site of geological wonder, located at the intersection of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates but also a place charged with history, as the site of the national parliament since 930. Þingvellir tells stories of geographical and political struggles, compromises and ongoing evolution. Þingvellir was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage List for its cultural values in 2004.
After drop off we will head to our headquarter at Skógarhlíð 10.
