The essential iceland excursion. Hubby & I on a 'bucket list' break Absolutely perfect excursion. We'll organised, punctual, we'll planned day. Beautiful dry sunny day but absolutely freezing, def need thermals. All scenic stops were amazing, with around 45 mins to an hour at each place, and a slight longer stop at geyser for lunch. To end the day at the secret lagoon ended the trip perfectly - what an amazing experience, relaxing tired body in geothermal waters with frozen hair - amazing - I think this is the best most authentic lagoon in iceland - nit ti be missed Just book it - fabulous day

Absolutely breathtaking!!! Could not have imagined in my wildest dreams anything so spectacular from majestic waterfalls to deep canyons. Our tour guide was so informative and friendly, it wouldn’t have been the same without her. The secret lagoon was an experience in itself. It was so warm ( edging to hot) that you were grateful for the cooler air when you got out. We couldn’t smell the sulphur at all. We had two hours there but the heat of the water made me so lethargic I got out after an hour. All in all a fantastic day. The time goes so quickly so don’t let the thought of 9.5 hrs put you off. You get lengthy stops at each point to take in the wonders. Worth every penny or Krona.

A great day out and a perfect trip. The golden circle summarises the beauty of Iceland in a day. Tour guides were on hand to answer questions and give commentary to accompany the trip , added me to the experience. Definitely find time for the secret lagoon. This relaxing experience rounds off the day perfectly.
