Discover the hidden geothermal lagoon in the famous Golden Circle route in Iceland

The natural hot geothermal waters of the Secret Lagoon are the perfect complement to your tour of the Golden Circle of Iceland. The Secret Lagoon is located in a small town called Fludir, about half an hour drive from the famous Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir geothermal area. At really cheap prices you can enjoy a fabulous thermal bath in the middle of nature and live a purely Icelandic experience. The natural environment of the pool and the steam that rises in the air creates a magical feeling. The warm water is kept at 38-40 degrees all year round. In the area there are several geothermal points and a small geyser that erupts every 5 minutes. During winter, this area is an excellent starting point to see the Northern Lights at night.

The geothermal area near Flúdir is where the Secret Lagoon of Hverahólmi was created back in 1891. That's the reason why the Secret Lagoon is known as the oldest pool in Iceland. The actual new geothermal pool in Fludir dates back to 1947. The tradition of taking a bath in hot springs is part of Icelandic culture and is very much a part of everyday life for Icelanders. The Secret Lagoon offers indoor changing rooms with lockers and indoor showers and is segregated for men and women. There is also soap available and hair dryers. Cakes, sandwiches and drinks can be purchased at the Laguna Secreta café. If you forget your towel and swimsuit, don't worry, you can rent them at the Scret Lagoon.

The Golden Circle of Iceland, where the Secret Lagoon is located, is one of the most popular routes in Iceland. Three of Iceland's best-known natural monuments are part of it and can be covered in just a few hours from Reykjavík. For many people it is the first incursion into the incredible nature of Iceland. These three natural monuments of the Golden Circle are the Thingvellir National Park, a place that not only has incredible natural landscapes but also great historical and geological importance (here the tectonic plates are divided between Europe and North America); the impressive golden waterfall of Gullfoss, one of the most beautiful in Iceland; and the geothermal area where the famous Geysir and Strokkur geysers are located. To complete the tour of the Golden Circle, nothing better than a fabulous thermal bath in the natural geothermal waters of the Secret Lagoon.
