We came here after checking in to our hostel up the road. It’s a little pricey but worth it. It’s clean and warm. It’s a little small so I can’t imagine what it’s like in nicer weather. We went about 2 hours before closing and...More

I originally intended to come here just for the geothermal bread baking, but ended up visiting the baths too because I got to Laugarvatn a bit early. So glad I did! A) Baths: I think Laugarvatn Fontana is the BEST geothermal bath in Iceland for...More

This place is beautiful, quiet, and has amazing views. I felt much more at home here than I did at Blue Lagoon (granted that place is also wonderful but for different reasons). Admission to Fontana along with a homemade lunch buffet (SO SO SO good!)...More

We came here on a cold, rainy day just to escape the weather! It was a perfect activity. We did the lunch buffet and the baths. Everything was very decadent and relaxing.

A great place with various places to soak, swim and relax. Very clean. We had the buffet lunch which was good, though may not work for super picky eaters. Everyone loved the sauna which felt especially fantastic after a dip in the lake. Definitely stop...More

My wife and I decided to try out a few of the different geothermal baths while in Iceland. This one may have been my favorite because of how relaxing, laid back, and clean it was. With multiple baths at different temperatures, a few steam rooms,...More

We stopped here for lunch as we wanted to try the rye bread made by baking in lava. I thought the soup and bread was quite expensive but it turned out okay as you can eat as much as you want. They bake their own...More
