Every visitor who plans to go to Reykjavik has heard of the Blue Lagoon. However if you want to experience something a little more unique and natural, then the Secret Lagoon in Flúðir is the place to go.
Enjoy the stunning scenery during a panoramic drive over the Mosfellsheidi heath to Thingvellir National Park, Iceland’s only UNESCO World Heritage site, due to its historical, cultural and geological significance. Have your camera at the ready, as a brief photo stop will be made at the viewpoint overlooking the valley, before continuing past Iceland‘s largest natural lake, Thingvallavatn.
Then it’s on to Friðheimar Farm to meet a local family who have turned their passion for horses and horticulture into a thriving business. Knútur and Helena grow tomatoes all year round, despite Iceland’s long, dark winters, under artificial lighting in greenhouses. Amidst the fragrant aroma of fresh tomato plants, enjoy some homemade tomato soup served with fresh baked bread, butter and herbs.
The highlight of the tour is the natural hot springs at the Secret Lagoon. Soak your body in the warm water and soak up the stunning natural scenes. Within the area there are several geothermal spots and a little geysir which erupts every few minutes, showing off to those relaxing in the springs. With steam rising into the air, these tranquil surroundings really do have a mystical feel, but shhh don’t tell everyone – it’s a secret!
