Fabulous tour! Easy to book online - the tour was fun and both the tour guide and driver were very nice. The pace of the tour is good so you don’t feel too rushed. It was really nice to get away from the city and go far out to visit the secret lagoon. It’s a small place but very cosy and great thermal experience. The Icelandic dinner included was superb with a good selection of lamb, fish and delicious chocolate cake at the end. We were very lucky to see the lights as we drove out into a remote area where we had a clear view. Perfect experience.

The Secret Lagoon was great. The Icelandic buffet dinner was delicious but was very rushed. I felt like our server had other evening plans to get to. Our allotted hour and a half meal time was over in 45 minutes. I was sad that we didn’t see any Northern Lights but the clouds and solar flares were just not cooperating.

We enjoyed this excursion, the driver was great at keeping us informed and giving us lots of information on our way around the areas visited. The meal we had was excellent and we could have stayed in the restaurant for longer as we were all getting along so well and enjoyed chatting. But, we had come in search of the Northern Lights and search we did. Unfortunately, despite our guide's best efforts, there was too much cloud for us to be able to see them. In all, it was a very enjoyable evening, the only downside being the communal changing room and showers which had to be taken naked! As a 65 year old woman I was not comfortable with this and chose not to take part in this aspect of the tour, my husband did though and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Tour Itinerary

The Secret Lagoon
The Secret Lagoon is a natural hot spring and pool located near the village of Flúðir in South Iceland, just off the Golden Circle route. Fed by mineral-rich geothermal water from nearby hot springs at a steady temperature of 38° to 40°, the Secret Lagoon’s pool of water is perfect for bathing and relaxation.

Icelandic open-air bathing experience
Over the years, the Secret Lagoon, or Gamla laugin as it was referred to by locals, has been part of the local culture that is keeping alive the unique and authentic Icelandic open-air geothermal bathing experience.

Hot springs and geothermal features
The Secret Lagoon offers neat and clean locker rooms, showers and changing facilities, as well as a small bar and eating area. Boardwalks and footpaths surround the concrete encased pool enabling guests to explore small hot springs and geothermal features in the immediate area.

Light Buffet
After bathing in the Secret Lagoon, the tour continues to Restaurant Grund for a delicious light buffet where you can enjoy sampling variety of Icelandic cuisine.

Northern Lights Hunt
Heading back to Reykjavik, the exciting hunt for the elusive Northern lights begins. Your guide and driver will scout and select viewing spots to give you the best chances of experiencing the amazing display of auroras.

This is a truly enjoyable tour, combining some of the best experiences Iceland has to offer; the awe-inspiring Northern lights and a warm, relaxing open air bath.
