What to Expect
Your morning starts with pickup from designated locations around Reykjavik. From there, head out of the city to the Secret Lagoon, located on the famous Golden Circle route. Widely considered among Iceland’s top attractions, the Secret Lagoon is a series of heated pools and baths where the water stays at 100–104° Fahrenheit (38–40 Celsius) throughout the year. Admire sweeping views over the Icelandic countryside from the comfort of your coach and then enjoy two hours to relax at your leisure in the Secret Lagoon’s steaming pools. Afterward, travel by bus through the beautiful Haukadalur Valley, home to geothermal features, including the Strokkur geyser and Gullfoss waterfall. Tour through the Thingvellir National Park, where the mighty North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet, and listen as your guide shares the history of the world’s oldest still-functioning parliament. Then, take a seat back aboard your coach for the return journey to your drop-off point in Reykjavik.

Can not rate this tour highly enough. Our tour guide snow and our driver Lucas were a brilliant combo and gave us a good few laughs along the way. The secret was the highlight for me alot less tourists compared to blue lagoon and scenery is next level.
