This extraordinary tour Tours of Iceland is a great way to see the world renown Golden Circle of Iceland and visit the Secret Lagoon to unwind in a hot spring natural bath.
First we pick you up at your hotel around 10 o´clock. Then we drive to the monumental Þingvellir, which is our national treasure – our national park where the first Alþingi in the world was hosted. That was an general assembly where many of major events in our history took place in the years 930-1798.Þingvellir is on the World Heritage list for its cultural values.
A wealth of things can be noticed at the geothermal area by Geysir in Haukadalur but there the hot spring
spouts water several times each hour in a piping hot water column
that goes high up in the air, well applauded by those present. The
geothermal area is one of the most renowned in the world and has been
for centuries. Gullfoss is one of the most majestic waterfall of
Iceland, situated a stone’s throw from Geysir. The waterfall was
reserved in 1979 to protect the canyons and the nature surrounding
it. The Gullfoss Canyon is around 2,5km long, ranging about 70 meters
in height. It is considered that the canyon was mostly formed through
grand glacial floods at the end of the Ice Age. Gullfoss is actually
two separate waterfalls, the upper waterfall is 11 meters high and
the lower 20 meters high. The strata where the waterfall meets the
edge have all been formed in the warmer period of the Ice Age. The
quantity of water running through Gullfoss is an average of 109 cubic
meter per second.
After this glorious day, we will stop
at the Secret Lagoon where you can soak and relax in 36-40°C/97-104°F
warm water. It is one of the oldest natural geothermal swimming
pools in the country and it is a unique experience! You can take a
look at other hot springs on the way, they even have a „little
Geyser” which erupts every few minutes.
You just have to bring a bathing suit and towel,
everything else is included in the price! We stop for lunch during
the day, but it is excluded from the price.
