The quintessential Iceland day tour… With a twist! Join us as we take you to soak in the warm, relaxing waters of a traditional Icelandic hot spring before taking you along one of the most popular tourist routes in Iceland!
This is a combo tour not to be missed as not only does it combine two fantastic activities into one day but also grants an earlier admission to the lagoon than what is typically available.
The Golden circle and secret lagoon are both in the same area of the south west of Iceland and as such it is very easy to create a route in which you will be able to see everything. We begin the day with our trip to the Secret Lagoon in the town of Fluðir where the warm 40 degree waters will rest your mind, body and soul. After a few hours relaxing here we then take you along the golden circle route where you will be able to see the geothermal paradise of Geysir, the magnificence of the Gullfoss waterfall and Þingvellir national park.
This combo is one of the most popular tours in Iceland and once you have been on it you will certainly understand why.

The first step to this great combo tour is our fast and efficient pick up service. We will come to pick you up you from either, one of the hotels in the centre of Reykjavik or from one of the many pick up spots dotted across the city. Once everyone is accounted for we will begin our drive towards our first stop, The Secret Lagoon.
Originally known as Gamla Laugin (the old pool), this hot spot in the town of Fludir is relatively untouched compared to other lagoons in the area. What this spot lacks in development however, it more than makes up for with its scenery and ambience. There is nothing in the world quite like letting all your worries melt away in these hot waters whilst also feeling the history of the generations of people who have done so before you.
Following on from your trip to one geothermal marvel we then take you to another, Geysir geothermal area. The area is named after the “Great Geysir” a large geyser in the area that interestingly is one of the first of its kind to be mentioned in texts. As a result the Great Geysir is actually the origin of the English word Geyser. Sadly due to its age Geysir is no longer able to erupt of its own volition but luckily there is still activity here to be seen and Geysirs sister hot spring Strokkur still erupts frequently. There is also a large visitors center here and a great spot for you to buy some lunch.
Leading on from Geysir we will then travel to our next destination which will be Gullfoss, the golden waterfall. Gullfoss is a huge waterfall that drops around 32 meters over two different stages. It is fed from the white river which originates from Iceland’s 2nd biggest glacier, Langjökull. The waterfall got its name due to a unique mineral composition that causes a shimmering effect as the water drops.
As our trip winds down to an end we journey back in the direction of the city, but we have one more stop to dazzle you with before we are done.
Last but not least comes Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park. This is the site where the world's first parliament was formed when the old Viking group leaders decided to join together on a yearly basis to discuss their country. This area is also notable as being the location where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are separating from each other.
Once we have enriched your mind, body and soul with these these fantastic examples of both Icelandic culture and nature we will drive back to the city to wrap up the day.
