  • Full-Day Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon trip from Reykjavik
  • Travel through Iceland’s stark countryside to the Secret Lagoon
  • Enjoy time to bathe in the steamy springs of the geothermal pool
  • Admire the country scenery as you soak
  • See the nearby geyser and surrounding geothermal pools
  • Lagoon admission included, with food and drinks at own expense
  • Return coach transfers from Reykjavik Skarfabakki Harbor, plus central Reykjavik hotel, cruise port.
  • Marvel at natural wonders such as the Gullfoss waterfall, Strokkur geyser, and Thingvellir National Park
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.

We had a great day with Finn. It was a cold but sunny day and enjoyed our Golden Circle tour and sites so much. The Secret Lagoon was the highlight for me and it was just wonderful. Thank you for the great day.

Excellent day, the bus driver was very knowledgeable of the history, geography and helpful, to the point where he was advising what tour/ excursions to book as he thought they weren’t worth the money. He was very patient and funny to the point that he kept his promise and sung at the end of the tour. Would advise anyone to book this excursion

Absolutely fantastic day. Weather was not the best but as our tour guide Howser (hope I spelled his name right) and driver Christophe were so brilliant did not matter. Secret lagoon was idyllic and waterfall amazing. Howser's knowledge and skilled story telling of Icelands history had just the right balance of fascinating facts and humour. Outstanding day timings for pickup and drop off went without a hitch. When return to Iceland would definitely book with you again especially if gave same outstanding team.

The tour itself was with the company Bus Travel Iceland, and it was amazing. Thorga was an incredible guide, with unlimited knowledge of Iceland. Would definitely recommend, though you can probably book straight through Bus Travel Iceland.

On time, comfortable and nice guide. The secret lagoon exceeded expectations and made our later trip to the blue lagoon seem a bit staged for tourism. Would actually do the same tour again another time of year as the scenery was stunning

What an awesome experience! I felt like we got so much more out of this tour, the crater, the lagoon, geysir, national park, and we even stopped to pet some horses! We had an absolute blast
