Secret Lagoon and Northern Lights Tour

We’ll begin your fantastic day trip from Reykjavik and Iceland’s northern lights tour with pick-up at your hotel in Reykjavik.

First, we’ll warm ourselves up for the evening with a visit to the Secret Lagoon, 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.

Here we’ll take a dip in the warm waters of the Icelandic open-air bath. The Secret Lagoon, or Gamla lagoon 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.

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.

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

On our return to Reykjavik, we’ll begin our exciting hunt for the elusive Northern lights. 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.
