Laugarvatn Fontana Geothermal Baths is in the center of the popular Golden Circle route. Discover a unique experience of the healing powers of the geothermal springs. Soak in a natural pool, listen to the bubbling hot spring in the steam rooms, or (for the adventurous), take a dip in the refreshing lake.
Since 1929, locals have been enjoying the healing powers of the natural steam baths by Lake Laugarvatn. Hot, healing steam simmers directly from the ground through grids in the cabin floors of the three traditional steam rooms. The temperature of the steam varies between 40°C (104°F) and 50°C (122°F). Grids in the floor of the steam rooms allow guests to hear and smell the boiling natural hot spring right underneath, creating a natural and unique experience.
Fontana’s pools, hot tub and Finnish sauna are perfect for relaxation. Completing the ensemble is the lake itself and the beach. Bathers can walk into the cool lake from a pier or walk on the warm black sand beach. Cold bathing is believed to have beneficial health effects.
The café at Laugarvatn Fontana offers a selection of healthy and locally produced delicacies and refreshments, including traditional steam-baked rye bread.
