Full description
Start the day with a perfect combo of Golden circle sightseeing and relaxation at the nature hot spring bath, called by locals The Secret Lagoon.

By going in the mid-morning there will be fewer people and more time to explore Iceland’s most visited attractions, such as Geysir, Gullfoss and Þingvellir, and enjoy the relaxing nature bathing at The Secret Lagoon.

Þingvellir is a national park and a UNESCO World Heritage site where the two tectonic plates are slowly drifting apart. The Geysir hot spring area has the geyser Strokkur sprouting hot water up to 20 meters high every 4 – 8 minutes. The Golden waterfall never disappoints and if you are lucky you might spot a rainbow forming in the mist from the waterfall in the sunshine. Last but not least your can relax in the Secret Lagoon, which is one of the oldest natural geothermal swimming pools in Iceland. It is surrounded by beautiful hot springs, one of which sprouts every few minutes.

Everything went to plan. We enjoyed wonderful scenery, giving us a brief history and geology of this beautiful island. Stops were well timed and allowed for some personal exploration too. We loved everything! The Secret Lagoon was fabulous! The guides were all friendly and well informed. I can highly recommend. this tour

A very well organised trip, coach collected us promptly from hotel, we had a very informative guide who gave us the history and a great insight into Iceland. We stopped at different sights which were all really beautiful, there was plenty of time to take in all the wonderful scenery and surroundings. The guides have this down pat as you never felt rushed along at any of the sites

Me and my 6 year old son Ralph had the best day trip out with our incredible driver/guide Klaus!! We loved every minute of this Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon trip and really great day. The hour I spent in the Secret Lagoon, surrounded by snow, with my Son was a real highlight of the day and one of my favourite travel moments ever. Klaus is a safe driver and a cheerful guide who had great knowledge and really helped us make the most of the trip. Would strongly recommend booking this trip with Sterna for a great day out for a really reasonable price. Thanks for a brilliant day!!!
