Pamper yourself at Laugarvatn Fontana Spa
For Northern Lights hunting with a health and wellness twist, Reykjavik Excursions offers guided tours to the open-air geothermal pools at Laugarvatn Fontana Spa which lies on the famous Golden Circle route. Here you can luxuriate in the soothing warm waters of the spa’s open air hot tubs and pools, enjoy a smorgasbord of locally prepared foods and relax with a spa-side drink while waiting for the Northern Lights to appear. Iceland is well known for its geothermal pools and Laugarvatn is one of the oldest and most renowned geothermal areas in the country. Afterwards, you will be off again in the coach, chasing down the Northern Lights on the return trip to Reykjavík. To your health!
A 14 hour epic journey on Iceland’s south coast
Now it’s possible to visit the magnificent glacial lagoon on Iceland’s south coast in winter and get a chance to hunt for the elusive Northern Lights at the same time. The lagoon, with its mesmerizing glittering icebergs from the glacier floating in the waters that lead to the sea will surely be one of the highpoints of your Iceland tour, made even more magical in winter. On the return leg of the journey, you will stop at many iconic spots such as Vík, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls.
