Secret Lagoon

The Secret Lagoon, known as Gamla Laugin in Icelandic, is a hidden gem nestled in the quaint village of Flúðir in the Golden Circle area. Established in 1891, it is Iceland's oldest swimming pool, offering a unique and relaxing geothermal experience that combines history, nature, and tranquility.

Unlike the more commercialized hot springs, the Secret Lagoon retains an authentic and rustic charm. Its natural surroundings, including bubbling hot springs and a small geyser that erupts every few minutes, create a serene and picturesque setting. The water, rich in minerals, is kept at a perfect temperature of 38-40°C (100-104°F) year-round, providing a soothing soak no matter the season.

Visitors can enjoy the lagoon's warm, clear waters while taking in the stunning Icelandic landscape. The pool's natural steam and the surrounding geothermal features add to the ambiance, making it a perfect spot to unwind and rejuvenate.

The Secret Lagoon also offers basic amenities, including changing rooms, showers, and a cozy café where you can enjoy light refreshments. Its off-the-beaten-path location means it is often less crowded than other popular hot springs, allowing for a more intimate and peaceful experience.

Whether you're looking to relax after a day of exploring the Golden Circle or seeking a quiet retreat in nature, the Secret Lagoon offers an enchanting escape that captures the magic of Iceland's geothermal wonders.
