Small-Group Golden Circle Tour and Secret Lagoon Visit from Reykjavik
We enjoyed our tour and the information given to us by our guide. The only thing I didn’t like was we were not given near enough time at Gulfoss. One hour to walk to see the waterfall, order and eat lunch and then try to buy a souvenir was way too short. An hour and a half at that location would be much better.

Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon Full Day Tour from Reykjavik by Minibus
Bjorn is an amazing tour guide. Very knowledgeable and quite funny. He made our tour wholly worthwhile. The Secret Lagoon and the stop at the farm for homemade ice cream were the bomb.

Snowmobiling on Langjökull Glacier, Ice Cave and Bathing in the Secret Lagoon
I’ve always wanted to snowmobile so I thought what cooler way than on a glacier and it did not disappoint. The views were so beautiful. We lucked out and had a very sunny day. Magnus was our guide and he was great.

Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon Tour from Reykjavík
The guide told us a lot about Island, the history and how it is nowadays. When the weather changed and there was a lot of snow he was calm and drove nicely and easy. He was positive and cunning. The places we went to were great. A very good excursion!

Skip the Line: Secret Lagoon Entrance Ticket
We booked the Ticket two days before. Because of bad weather, we arrived two hours earlier than booking time. This was no problem. The service team was friendly and helpful. The cafe is nice and offers snacks and sweets. The bath has a proper locker room and shower. The water temperature is just right. Around noon (in September) there were less people, while later, about 2 pm, it was more crowded. We can recommend to book in advance.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • There's only one swimming pool at the Secret Lagoon, so advance reservations are recommended.

  • Visitor facilities include a snack bar, showers, and changing rooms; towels and swimsuits are available for rent.

  • All visitors must shower thoroughly before swimming in the lagoon.

How to Get There

The Secret Lagoon is located in the small village of Fludir in the Golden Circle area of South Iceland, about 60 miles (97 kilometers) east of Reykjavik. The only way to get there is by road, so those without their own transport can either take a taxi or visit as part of a tour.

When to Get There

The Secret Lagoon is open year-round, although opening times vary with the seasons. Visiting in the morning or early afternoon is the best time to avoid the crowds.

Show all

Northern Lights and Midnight Sun

While the geothermal area around the Secret Lagoon is a prime viewing spot for the seasonal phenomena of the Northern Lights (winter) and the Midnight Sun (summer), the swimming pool itself is only open until 8pm in winter and 10pm in summer. Many tours combine an atmospheric evening swim in the lagoon with a Northern Lights viewing safari or a tour of the Golden Circle beneath the light of the Midnight Sun.
