  • Iceland Secret Lagoon Admission Ticket

    1. Iceland Secret Lagoon Admission Ticket

    Originally built in 1891, the ‘Gamla Laugin’  is Iceland’s first swimming pool. Spend time in this relaxing setting feeling your worries slip away. A natural hot spring feeds the lagoon with 38-39°C water  that bubbles up from deep within the earth at a rate of 10 litres per second, constantly replenishing itself so that there is a steady supply of fresh clean water in the pool at any given time, letting you rest as long as you need.  Enjoy brand new facilities at the Secret Lagoon including changing rooms, showers, resting rooms, bar and restaurant area.  Situated in a remote location in Fluðir, the Secret Lagoon is just an hour away from Geysir, 1 hour and 20 minutes from Reykjavik and 2 hours from Vik making it a great desination on your trip to Iceland. 

    The Secret Lagoon is delightful resting 'activity' to add to your adventure travels in Iceland. We had been horse-back riding and hiking a whole lot and felt a bit tired and sore. Floating in the lagoon was just the perfect cure for that! It seemed like a much less formal and sophisticated version of the Blue lagoon, which we also visited, and I liked it all the more for that. Definitely worth visiting!

  • Full-Day Iceland Game of Thrones Tour

    2. Full-Day Iceland Game of Thrones Tour

    Take in Iceland's breathtaking scenery, used as filming locations in the gripping television series "Game of Thrones." Experience the dramatic gorge at Þingvellir — the stomping ground of White Walkers and "north of the Wall." Soak up the raw, dramatic atmosphere surrounded by magnificent nature at Þingvellir and learn the significance of the setting to the show's plot. Explore Þjorsárdalur and the "Settlement Era Viking Lodge," the filming location where a whole village was massacred. Visit Þórufoss waterfall, and put yourself in the footsteps of the young boy who witnessed Drogon attacking the goats he was looking after. Meet special characters from the series and get up close to some of the Icelandic horses that starred in the series on your way back to Reykjavík city.

    We had a female guide who was quite knowledgeable and entertaining. Her tips on how to pet the Icelandic horses made the visit to the horse farm both safe and endearing. She helped give perspective on the Game Of Thrones filming locations by showing stills of the scenes corresponding to the locations where the dragon ate the goat, the Hound brought Arya to the Vale, Ygritte and the wildlings leveled a grassy village, and Brienne battled the Hound. There was enough time left over also for us to visit a bonus waterfall and drink from it too! Great GoT tour if you have an ear to deflect a lot of 4-letter words, and can decipher the guide’s narratives while the bus driver is talking to the CB radio in Icelandic.

  • From Reykjavik: Secret Lagoon with Transfers

    3. From Reykjavik: Secret Lagoon with Transfers

    The Secret Lagoon natural hot springs are located in a village called Flúðir, an approximately 1.5-hour drive from Reykjavik. You will travel there by bus from Reykjavik. The Secret Lagoon, or Gamla Laugin as it is known locally, is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland. The facilities have been fully renovated in recent years with indoor changing rooms with lockers and showers, and a small bar and a dining area where snacks and drinks are available for purchase. After you get into the pleasantly warm pool, you can watch the steam as it rises to the air while you relax and feel all tension leave your body. After approximately 2 hours at the Secret Lagoon, you will return to Reykjavik by bus.

    Maybe not as flash as the Blue Lagoon but better value, well organised, and in a great location. The journey down from Reykjavik to South Iceland was as good as the final destination. Incredible scenery.

We loved our tour with Dee Dee. She was not only extremely knowledable but kept us entertained with great stories and anecdotes. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it to GOT fans and non GOT folks.

Maybe not as flash as the Blue Lagoon but better value, well organised, and in a great location. The journey down from Reykjavik to South Iceland was as good as the final destination. Incredible scenery.

DeeDee is FANTASTIC! She knows so much about the GOT locations but also shares info about many other films shot in Iceland. She is charming and lively and a wonderful guide.

Dee Dee did an amazing job, you absolutely can feel her passion! Best tour during my stay!
