Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Start your tour with an optional early evening pickup from your central Reykjavik hotel, or alternatively, meet your guide at a central location in the city. Hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle, and gaze out at Iceland’s lava-coated landscapes as you travel east to the Laugarvatn Fontana geothermal baths.

Along the way, listen to the live onboard guided commentary about Iceland's volcanic geology and geothermal springs: warm, natural pools of water heated by underground volcanic rock.

On arrival, head inside the stylish Fontana complex, sitting on the shores of calm Lake Laugarvatn. Change into your bathing suit, and then use the time at your disposal to bask in the three interconnected outdoor mineral baths. Dip into the different pools as you wish — each has a different depth and temperature — and soak in the peaceful lake views as you relax and revitalize.

If you wish, enjoy a spell in what’s known as the ‘Gufan;’ three steam cabins filled with steam that seeps naturally up from the ground below. Enjoy the soothing powers of the steam, and then, if you’re feeling adventurous, take a dip in the pure, cold waters of the lake — reached via a nearby platform. Switching from the warm steam and pools to cold water is believed to benefit the circulation, and release toxins.

If you’re lucky during your visit, you’ll be treated to the perfect evening conditions, with the midnight sun shining bright across the sky.

Finally, after ample time to enjoy Fontana’s facilities and setting, change back into your clothes and reconvene with your vehicle. Then, enjoy a scenic detour around Iceland’s stunning southern countryside before returning to the capital.

Your experience concludes with a hotel or central drop-off in Reykjavik just after midnight.

Excellent spa
Jemma_S

Spa was amazing. Buffet food was good but make sure you get in quick! Suitable for vegetarians as well. Clean changing facilities but is communal. Access to very cold lake and hot pools and a relaxing experience. Sadly didn’t see any northern lights this trip but was rearranged with no extra charge for the next day. Only downside which is why not give five stars is the coach driver/guide wasn’t very helpful or informative.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are pleased that you enjoyed the spa and the dinner buffet. However we do apologize for our guide's behavior. In continuity we kindly ask you send a thorough description of events to our Quality Manager Helga Bryndís at helgab@re.is, so our quality department can revise the matter. We hope that you had a wonderful time in Iceland. Best wishes Team Reykjavik Excursions

We did not do the lights part, due to rain, but the Fontana was great! Imagine night, with howling wind, cold outside... But the sauna and the warm water, out of this world! The lady guide / driver was the best so far.
