If you want to enjoy relaxing in an all-natural pool located in the Icelandic countryside, surrounded by beautiful nature this is the Golden circle way to go.
Thingvellir will be the first stop, a very important place for Icelanders, both historically and geologically. Next up is Geysir, the mother of all geysers, and the geothermal area. After seeing Strokkur spout hot water high up in the air (sometimes up to 30 m) Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, welcomes us with open arms. The Secret lagoon will be a perfect place to wash off the mist from Gullfoss, and there you can relax, enjoy beverages and the surrounding nature.
Our guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. We then start our journey by heading to Thingvellir National Park. Thingvellir is a UNESCO world heritage site because of its historic significance. The Icelandic parliament was established in Thingvellir in 930 AD, making it the world's first parliament. Thingvellir is not only known because of its significant history, it is also known for its geology. Thingvellir is where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. At Thingvellir, you can visibly see where the two tectonic plates are drifting apart, but each year they drift around 2.5 cm apart. Thingvellir is filled with beautiful landscapes as it has some waterfalls, a lake, and much more to explore.
Our next stop is at Geysir Geothermal Area. The whole area has a surface of approximately 3km2 and it is extremely stunning. The geothermal field is named after Geysir, the oldest geyser in the area and the most well-known geyser in Iceland. At this location you can also find the amazing geyser Strokkur. Strokkur is the most energetic spouting spring in Iceland. It spouts water around 10-20 meters in the air every few minutes. It’s truly a magnificent sight.
Gullfoss Waterfall or The Golden Waterfall is our next stop. Gullfoss Waterfall flows from the glacier river Hvita. The massive amount of water flowing down the waterfall comes from Iceland’s second largest glacier, Langjokull. If you stand close enough to the waterfall you can feel the ground trembling beneath your feet, and you get mist from the waterfall on your face, it’s so refreshing!
After seeing some of Iceland’s most stunning waterfalls, we head to the Secret Lagoon. The Secret Lagoon is a natural hot spring pool located in a geothermal area in the small village Fludir. (The locals call it Leynilaugin.) The steam coming from the ground and the beautiful Icelandic nature surrounding the Secret Lagoon makes it a unique and wonderful experience to go for a swim. Sometimes you can see geysers erupt in the area while you relax in the pool. Truly magnificent!
After a great day of exploring Iceland, our guide will drop you off at your accommodation in Reykjavik.
