The (not so) Secret Lagoon is a great stop along the golden circle. Many tours stop there too so it's hit or miss on how crowded your visit may be. Much more rustic and laid back than the blue lagoon, the water is clear and...More

Lovely modern and clean shower/changing rooms. You have to shower naked; the pictures showing you which bits are especially important to clean are quite amusing! The water was so warm and hotter closer to where the water was entering the pool. Nice but small cafe...More

Ok. When you pull up it looks pretty shabby. The the lobby area where you check in looks old. The locker rooms are fine. The water area isn’t big and that’s nice. You can see the water coming in from the thermal event going on...More

Found the "secret lagoon" hiding behind a series of greenhouses. Decided to try out the thermal pool to get a bit relaxed after a long day of traveling to Iceland and driving the "Golden Circle". 1st, it costs the equivalent of $60USD for 2 adults...More

I had arrived at my Reykjavik hotel at 2am and my trip to the secret lagoon was at 10am that same morning. I was jet lagged but spending nearly 2 hours soaking in the warm waters of the lagoon was a perfect pick me up....More

There was no time limit once we were in, it’s all up to you. We were about 2 hours early and they let us in, it was busy at the time but not crazy packed!
