Picture this, soaking yourself in a pool that’s 48 degrees Celsius .Surrounded by rock formations made of molten lava, away from civilization and the hustle and bustle of city life. Every five minutes a spouting geyser shoots hot gas nearly 20 feet into the air. The steam that rises from the surrounding terrain into the air gives the place its distinct and magical atmosphere.
Book Your Tickets to the Lagoon
The Secret Lagoon is a warm geothermal spring from a natural water source located in Hveraholmi, the geothermal area near the village of Flúðir in southern Iceland. It is the oldest pool in the country, and one of the most popular for locals and tourists alike.
Although the name “The Secret Lagoon” is not so secret and although it is not packed with visitors like the Blue Lagoon, it is still required to pre-order tickets especially in the summer – you can place tickets at the bottom of the page.
The spring location is on the famous “Golden Circle” route, close to the Gullfoss waterfall, within the village of Fludir Flúðir. This lush green village is known for using natural energy from the soil, used for agriculture through greenhouses. Thus Iceland produces fresh food throughout the year. Another major advantage of this geothermal activity is the natural and old thermal pools located in the area.
The “secret lagoon” uses geothermal energy to heat the water to a temperature of 38-40 ° C all year. Ideal for bathing.
The area around the hot spring is made up of mossy lava fields and geothermal hot spots, including a small geyser that erupts every 5 minutes, which can be seen from the pool. A trail by the pool allows you to easily tour the area. The steam rising from the surrounding area into the air gives the place its magical and distinct atmosphere.
