Golden Circle & Fontana Geothermal Spa

Price: 11.990 ISK
With Reykjavik Sightseeing

Here you get to explore the iconic Golden Circle and relax in between stops at Fontana Spa. At our first stop we retrace the footsteps of the ancient Vikings by visiting Þingvellir National Park. Þingvellir is where the early settlers established their national assembly and took the first step to defining a nation. Þingvellir is an extremely dramatic and beautiful location. It´s also where the American and Eurasian continental plates are literally pulling apart at an annual rate of 2 cm.  The park also has within it Iceland’s biggest lake, Þingvallavatn.

The next stop is Laugavatn. It´s a town, a lake, and the home of Fontana Geothermal Spa. Whatever the weather you can be sure that Fontana is the perfect spot for relaxing in between sightseeing and enjoying the fresh Icelandic air.
The view of the lake is spectacular – and if you´re daring enough you can even take a dip in the lake´s cool waters, in between enjoying the natural saunas and bathing in the soothing warm pools of varying temperatures. In the saunas, hearing the boiling water bubble and gurgle below the floors is surreal – you can literally feel the geothermal power underneath the earth.

Next it´s on to see the world famous Geysir – where the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes.

Our last stop is the dramatic Gullfoss Waterfall, which is a breathtaking sight to behold. Here a powerful glacial river cascades down 32 meters on two levels and into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.

All in all – it’s the perfect combination of activities. Amazing must-do sightseeing, and a relaxing bathe in a geothermal spa set in a gorgeous location!

Please note

Þingvellir. Located on the northern shores of lake Þingvallavatn, Þingvellir is the national pride of Iceland and our first National Park. It is, for one, a key location in Icelandic history as the oldest existing parliament in the world first assembled there in 930 AD. Þingvellir has for this reason been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Besides being a location of historical significance, Þingvellir is also protected as a national park due to its unique geology and natural features. Almannagjá is a canyon formed between two tectonic plates, a visual representation of a continental drift.

Fontana Spa & Wellness a must experience en route to the Golden Circle. Laugarvatn Fontana is a reinvigorating site where you can enjoy the healing powers of the geothermal water; soak in a natural pool, listen to the bubbling hot spring in the steam rooms, or for the venturesome, take a dip in the refreshing lake. The warm pools and hot pots vary in depth, size, and temperature just like the three traditional steam rooms.

Geysir. The home of the original geyser and Iceland´s most iconic natural site. There the ground shakes and super heated water erupts into the sky from the famous Strokkur geyser every few minutes.
Gullfoss Waterfall is a powerful and inspiring place. There the glacier water thunders down 32 meters in three steps and into a narrow canyon.
