Secret Lagoon (Gamla Laugin) Tours

star-4.5
117 Reviews
Close to the attractions of Iceland’s Golden Circle but far from the crowds of the famous Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s Secret Lagoon offers natural hot springs and a remote location surrounded by icy wilderness and rugged lava fields. 

The Basics
Visitors come to the Secret Lagoon to bathe in its geothermal pool and the steamy waters are naturally heated to between 100–104˚F (38–40˚C) year-round. Secret Lagoon tours from Reykjavik often include a visit to the Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall, the Geysir geyser, or other attractions in the Golden Circle area. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There is only one swimming pool at the Secret Lagoon, so advance reservations are recommended.
  • Visitor facilities include a snack bar, showers, and changing rooms; towels and swimsuits are available for rent.
  • All visitors must shower thoroughly before swimming in the lagoon.

How to Get There
The Secret Lagoon is located in the small village of Fludir in the Golden Circle area of South Iceland, about 60 miles (97 kilometers) east of Reykjavik. The only way to get there is by road, so those without their own transport can either take a taxi or visit as part of a tour.

When to Get There
The Secret Lagoon is open year-round, although opening times vary with the seasons. Visiting in the morning or early afternoon is the best time to avoid the crowds.

Northern Lights and Midnight Sun
While the geothermal area around the Secret Lagoon is a prime viewing spot for the seasonal phenomena of the Northern Lights (winter) and the Midnight Sun (summer), the swimming pool itself is only open until 8pm in winter and 10pm in summer. Many tours combine an atmospheric evening swim in the lagoon with a Northern Lights viewing safari or a tour of the Golden Circle beneath the light of the Midnight Sun.
Address: 845 Flúðir, Hvammsvegur, Iceland
Hours: Winter: 11am - 8pm, Summer: 10am - 10pm
Admission: Adults: 2800 ISK

The steaming Secret Lagoon Hot Spring is a great place to rest your tired muscles after an intense week of sightseeing, but at over 65 miles out of Reykjavik, it can be difficult to get to without a rental car of your own. This convenient ticket package for the Lagoon takes that difficulty out of the equation with convenient round-trip transfers to and from the village of Flúðir. Get picked up from your hotel or cruise ship and driven straight to the Lagoon: all you need to worry about is relaxing.
