Golden Circle: Geothermal Sea Bath & Farm Lunch Guided Tour

Golden Circle: Geothermal Sea Bath & Farm Lunch Guided Tour

Your guide will pick you up at a hotel, guesthouse, or a close bus stop in Reykjavik(see bus stops here), and after you will head on this awesome journey. Thingvellir national parks is the first stop. This is where we got our independence, this is where we took Christianity, the first church in Iceland was built there and this is where the 2 tectonic plates that Iceland is located on, move apart from each other. Thingvellir is not an only natural beauty, but this place is filled with historical events throughout Iceland’s history. While you are in Iceland, there is a “must do” to try all the authentic Iceland has to offer. You get the chance to visit an Icelandic dairy farm and enjoy what Icelanders call, Made in satin”. That means enjoying food and products which the farmers make with their own hands. One of the farmers which are 3 sisters and 1 brother, will sit down with the small group and hold a presentation. After the presentation, you will taste their homemade products. For lunch, they have 2 options: Beef meat soup with beef from the farm, or mushroom soup with mushrooms from Iceland’s only mushroom farm. For dessert, you will get homemade ice cream. After this nice visit to these sisters’ farm, you will continue over to the world-famous one and only Geysir. Why do I say,, one and only”? That's because this natural phenomenon called Geyser comes originally from this one in Iceland. Do you know what every Icelander is proud of? The iconic Gullfoss waterfall. Standing there and marveling at this beautiful waterfall is absolutely breathtaking. The water in this waterfall runs from Iceland’s second-biggest glacier, Langjökull glacier. End this tour in a perfect way. Iceland is rich of geothermal water and we have hundreds of hot springs all around Iceland. You have the chance to bathe in one of Iceland’s hot springs and it’s actually a warm seawater. These are luxury geothermal sea baths located in Hvalfjörður (whale fjord) and there you get the most stunning view while relaxing both mind and body. If you are wondering how to dress for this activity, we always send out emails the day before about how the weather is going to be. But we highly recommend bringing rain gear to Iceland. Does not matter the time of the year. In winter, bring rain gear and also warm clothes, cap, and gloves. You can also rent a parka for your tour. Also, remember to bring a towel with you for the sea baths and a swimsuit. Not to mention your smile We look forward to seeing you on the tour.

Overall rating

4.6
(34 reviews)

Beautiful spa structure complete with showers (also closed), changing room equipped with hairdryer and all comforts and possibility of renting towels and swimsuits. Very friendly staff, there is also the possibility of stopping for lunch, but there are few tables so you may need to wait, but at the entrance there are comfortable armchairs where you can wait. Everything very clean.

The staff was nice and the views were amazing. The drinks are also surprisingly reasonably priced. A real sauna would have been nice, but the steam sauna was unusually warm, which was a positive surprise.

It's a good way to do a few things in the one go, for those that don't have that much time in Iceland

It was a great experience, would suggest they install swimsuit spinners to dewater the suit.

Our guide, Carlos, was wonderful, telling many stories along with facts.
