Enjoy a natural and historical treasure in the Golden Circle area: the peaceful and mystical Secret Lagoon hot spring pool.
We have kept the Secret Lagoon natural, simple, and unique for you so that you can get the true Icelandic experience.
The Secret Lagoon, known locally as Gamla Laugin, is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland. It was made in 1891 at Hveraholmi, a geothermal area near Fludr.
What makes our place special is the rich natural resources of warm water coming from hot springs. Vadmalahver, Basahver, and Litli Geysir (active geyser which spouts every few minutes, showing off for the guests), provide 100% of the water supply in the lagoon. The pool water flows continuously, and it takes only 24 hours to its complete replacement. Warm, clean, and rich in sulfur, the water stays at 38-40°C (100 – 104°F) all year round.
There are several hot springs around the Secret Lagoon. A walking path is built around the pool so that you can safely watch the boiling, gushing springs of water from it. Modern changing rooms are located close to the pool. A bistro sells snacks, cold sandwiches and drinks.
