What To Expect

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.

Secret Lagoon - Gamla Laugin

The Secret Lagoon is Iceland's second most famous lagoon. It derives from a hot spring which makes it a relaxing bathing spot.

1 hour 30 minutesAdmission Ticket Included

Thingvellir National Park

The Thingvellir are both historically and geologically a important location. Here was the first icelandic parliament founded in the late 900s and this is also the a visible division between the eurasian and the north american continental plates.

I very much appreciate the pick up and drop off feature.
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.
please wrap up if you’re going during winter time, it’s absolutely freezing!

Awesome , surreal experience . Our tour guide was a very learned man . Listening to him while travelling to all the places was enlightening experience
Knowledgeable guide who kept us entertained
Jenny_M, Mar 2023
A fantastic day tour of the Golden Circle with our guide Beggi. We would never have seen, or learnt so much about this beautiful place on our own. We were very lucky with the weather too!
Great sightseeing all in one day
ASHLEY_W, Mar 2023
The pick-up operator did not tell us that our pickup location no longer exists so we waited near where it was meant to be. However after we called them they picked up ok. Once we were on the tour bus it was great and the tour guide was fantastic. So many great sights in one day, the secret lagoon is a fun experience.
must do trip
Charlotte_b, Mar 2023
An amazing trip. The tour guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. All locations were beautiful. Would definitely recommend
A must - a truly wonderful way to see Iceland
Martin_W, Mar 2023
What an absolutely fantastic day! This tour is a must! We had Gudrun as our tour guide who was absolutely brilliant. She was clearly passionate about her country and extremely knowledgeable. The tour would not have been as good as it was, without her. With her knowledge and experience we were able to go to places with less crowds to enhance our tours. We learnt things we didn’t know at all about Iceland. The crater and waterfall is out of this world and the secret lagoon was absolute bliss. We almost had it to ourselves! Would not hesitate to recommend this company.
Good guide. Fantastic...

Good guide. Fantastic outdoor scenery and natural places. Kerid Crater had a good trail. Secret Lagoon was relatively uncrowded.
Value for money
Someswar_G, Mar 2023
It matches our expectations , guide was knowledgeable and the driver was excellent. Overall a great trip.
Fun and worthwhile!
Madison_K, Mar 2023
I really enjoyed this tour! I was a bit concerned about pick up because I had read some reviews saying no one ever picked them up, and my concerns were valid as they sent 3 buses all from the same company and each of them simply called out the names of the people on their bus so if you happened to be standing at the wrong bus you might have missed your bus. thankfully i made it onto my bus and it was smooth sailing from there, but this process could definitely use some tweaking. Other than that it was a great tour! Very fun, knowledgeable guide (Yoseph), amazing stops, adequate time at each, not too much driving between spots.
Great day excursion
Danna_P, Mar 2023
We were lucky enough to have Joseph as our tour guide - informative and funny but not overwhelming. We’ve been to great location and the entire experience was smooth and enjoyable. Would highly recommend!
Charlotte_O, Mar 2023
Our guide was very imformative about the stops and also about the views and local areas while driving. Plenty of time spent at each stop where you could explore, eat and have a toilet break. Secret Lagoon was lovely not overcrowded and clean
Great day out
Elaine_W, Mar 2023
Great experience and a great full day out seen lots of places and relieved Great knowledge from the rep a day to remember.
Whistle stop tour
Gemma_W, Mar 2023
Amazing whistle stop tour of the Golden Circle. Very well organised with enough time to explore each stop. If you’re short on time this tour is fantastic. Emily our tour guide was lovely and knowledgeable.
Golden Circle tour lives up!
Gary_T, Mar 2023
A great trip to the largest Waterfall and the Geysers, along with a fantastic stop off at the Secret Lagoon. Our guide - Emily was also good as we went along.
Great fun
Chloe_H, Mar 2023
Really great tour, brilliant way to get lots ticked off and you still get enough time at each spot. Joe was great really informative and helpful. Really fun day and a comfy coach to nap between stops.
I love Iceland
Scott_P, Feb 2023
Brilliant trip. I feel really privileged to have visited these parts of such an amazing and beautiful country. This tour enabled me to do this. Although expect a long and tiring day but it is definitely well worth it. We went if February and had different weather in every location. It was painfully cold at times so wrap up warm with layers you can add / remove. The guide Emily was friendly and provided plenty of facts about Iceland on the journey which was informative. Although I have not visited Blue Lagoon to compare, Secret Lagoon did not disappoint. I found we had just enough time at each location given the weather but being the exploratory soul I am, on own terms I would have had liked more time. But this tour is designed to get you seeing as much of thos amazing country in a day which it certainly does. We travelled with kids aged 7 & 11 and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves also. Highly recommended.
Camila_R, Feb 2023
Amazing experience!!! The tour itself was excellent, but what made it amazing was the guide Becky (don’t know if I’m writing that ok). He told us stories and a lot of Icelandic history. He made the trip unforgettable!! 12/10 would recommend.
Exciting day!
Judith_S, Feb 2023
Scary but wonderful walking round the edge of Kerid crater then going on to bathe in Secret Lagoon. This was small but really calm and peaceful. If you go in winter, crampons good for the icy footpaths around the crater and in the national park. The guide was really interesting and informative and made it a wonderful day.
Golden Circle Tour
Lisa_G, Feb 2023
It was just amazing. Gerry was very informative and I felt extremely safe with our bus driver. Throughly enjoyed the day.
Really spectacular day
Mhairi_m, Feb 2023
We had the most clear weather which was a bonus. Was a lovely mix of see and do with short walks, swim, views, and not too long stretches in the bus. We took a packed lunch and lots of snacks with us which helped with the expense but we had one big trip and glad we chose this one
