The Secret Lagoon

Natural hot pool close to Golden Circle

Secret Lagoon Iceland is situated within the Golden Circle area making it very easy to combine both attractions. What could be better than visiting three of Iceland’s most famous natural wonders followed by a relaxing bathe in a warm pool?

The Secret lagoon

The Secret Lagoon is located in the small village of Flúðir in the heart of an area with high geothermal activity. The landscape around the pool is very natural, the steam rising from the water gives everything a surreal and mystical feel. The thermal pool is maintained at a constant temperature of 38/40 C – lovely to experience at any time of year. Little pathways, geothermal hot spots and a small geyser, which erupts around every five minutes, are added attractions adjacent to the pool. There are lockers, comfortable changing rooms, and showers, a bar and eating areas. You cannot afford to miss this hidden gem!

Secret Lagoon was called “Gamla Laugin” which means The Old Pool. Not so many people knew about it, and thus, this pool also became known as The Secret Lagoon.

Our Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon Tour from Reykjavík is the perfect tour for those who want to combine history and nature with relaxing hot spring bathing! Visit Þingvellir (Thingvellir) in Þingvellir National Park, site of one of the oldest democratic parliaments in the world. Marvel at the unique geology, here the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates have been slowly moving apart creating a rift valley. Visit the renowned hot spring area around Geysir, stand well back and watch Strokkur erupt. Enjoy the sheer power and majesty of Gullfoss, listed in the top ten by World of Waterfalls. Finally, crown your day with a relaxing bathe in a warm geothermally heated pool surrounded by magnificent nature.
