Golden Circle and Fontana Wellness


Combine history, natural phenomena and relaxation

Enjoy the beauty and wellness of Icelandic nature on a day tour around the Golden Circle including a relaxing visit to Fontana Geothermal Baths.

The tour starts by visiting Thingvellir National Park where the Icelandic parliament Althingi was established in 930 AD.  

Next stop is Lake Laugarvatn and Fontana Geothermal Baths. Before enjoying a soak in the geothermal pools and having a relaxing moment in the natural steam rooms, you'll get the chance to visit a geothermal bakery located next to Lake Laugarvatn. For many this is the highlight of the tour; to see where rye bread, which has been baking in a pot in the warm sand, is dug out, and later to get a taste of the bread with delicious Icelandic butter. 

After a relaxing bath we continue to Gullfoss waterfall and the spouting hot spring area around Geysir and Strokkur.

What to bring:

  • Towel and a swim suit (can also be rented on spot)


  • Guided tour
  • A taste of rye bread at Fontana Wellness.
  • Admission to the Laugarvatn Fontana
  • Pick-up and drop-off from accommodation in Reykjavik

At arrival we booked the FlyBus+ service, which is great! The Marina Hotel was very nice and centrally located. Rooms are good, breakfast is good and staff is friendly.

The Blue Lagoon was very relaxing after the flight from New York. For all the excursions: it is a great service that guests are picked up at the hotel and brought to the bus station.

The Golden Circle tour was very nice. During the night, there had been some snowfall, which made the surroundings extra special. The tour itself was a great experience. The waterfall was great (despite the fog) , the geysers are fantastic, the Fontana Bath is a nice break of the day and the national park is amazing. The nature is very special and it is weird to see the cracks in the ground caused by the moving of the earth. 

In the evening we heard that the Northern Light tour should go, but unfortunately due to the upcoming clouds, we didn't see the Northern Lights.

I really had a great time and will definitely coming back one day!
