What others are saying
The tour was phenomenal, learnt lots on the trip to the first stop (The Secret Lagoon) and saw all of the Golden Circle. The company picked us up on time outside our allocated hotel (we were staying in an Airbnb so requested a pick up point of the next door hotel as they don’t pick up from residential addresses) The tour guide was knowledgeable and we were so glad to have chosen the tour with the added secret lagoon on it as it added an extra element of Icelandic charm and was a great way to start the day.

Had a great experience going on this tour. Julia (soft “J”) and our bus driver Tore (sorry spelling!) were great, telling us many interesting facts and arriving safely even with snow covered roads. The Secret Lagoon was very relaxing! I want to go again! Unfortunately due to bad weather I was unable to go on their Northern Lights tour.. but it’s a reason to return!

Full Itinerary - The Golden Circle Secret Lagoon Tour - What you’ll get
This 300-kilometer bus tour from Reykjavík will take you to the most spectacular natural highlights South Iceland has to offer.
Here’s a description of each stop included in this day tour.
The mysterious Secret Lagoon
After a pickup in Reykjavík, you’ll first head directly to the Secret Lagoon.
Here you’ll have plenty of time to bathe in the warm thermal waters while surrounded by open sky and beautiful, secluded natural surroundings.
Take a dip in this great natural hot springs!
With toasty temperatures between 38 to 40-degrees Celsius and surreal steam rising from the water’s surface, you’ll get a chance to unwind in one of the Iceland’s oldest geothermal hot springs before heading off for the day’s amazing adventures to come.
Thanks to the water’s constant heat, you can bathe here all year round.
In the winter, you might even get a glimpse of the Northern Lights on the horizon!
The Secret Lagoon is located in the picturesque village Flúðir (Fludir) in the Golden Circle area.
Marvel at natural geothermic wonders at Great Geysir
The next stop is one of Iceland’s greatest natural treasures, the geothermal area known as the Great Geysir.
This is undoubtedly one of the most popular stops on the Golden Circle route.
This area is home to eerie bubbling pools of hot mud and spectacular active geysers.
You’ll be absolutely blown away by the Strokkur hot spring geyser, whose eruptions hurl boiling water 30 meters into the air every eight minutes.
Truly the ultimate example of Iceland’s untamed landscape!
Take in the awesome power of Gullfoss Waterfall
Your Golden Circle tour then moves on to the iconic Gullfoss Waterfall (Golden Waterfall).
You’ll truly be in awe of the torrents of white rushing water which plummet down 32 meters into the canyon deep below.
If you’re lucky, you’ll spot a rainbow while you take in the majestic beauty of Iceland’s mind-blowing waterfall.
Explore the historic splendor of Þingvellir National Park
Last but not least, we’ll head to Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park.
Crowned a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Iceland’s Þingvellir National Park has been an official national treasure since 1930 – and for good reason.
Located directly at the intersection between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, the park’s haunting landscape, is guaranteed to take your breath away.
Hollywood and history agree!
Even Hollywood agrees: Iceland’s gorgeous Þingvellir National Park was the backdrop of many of the most unforgettable scenes in the popular television show “Game of Thrones”.
The park is also a major point of interest in Icelandic history.
In AD 930, the Althingi (Icelandic Parliament) was established on the fields of Þingvellir, which makes it the oldest parliament in the world!
