Revitalise your body and soul by bathing in the geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana after a drive through the beautiful UNESCO site Þingvellir National Park.
Fontana has three steam rooms built over a natural hot spring and a traditional sauna along with four different hot pools. The more adventurous travellers, can take a dip in lake Laugarvatn (when accessible) to cool down between the steam baths and sauna.
The steam temperatures range between 40°C and 50°C, depending on the temperature of the hot springs and the weather on the day. The steam rooms create a unique experience since you can smell the natural hot water boiling underneath the grids on the floor. The traditional sauna has lower humidity than the steam rooms, but the temperature is higher and reaches 80°C to 90°C.
The three connected outdoor mineral baths vary in depth, size and temperature. It is the perfect setting to relax and socialise. From the baths, you can see a panoramic view of the countryside around Fontana and the Northern Lights dancing in the sky if you are lucky and they show up early.
On the way back to Reykjavík, you will go on a hunt of the Northern Lights, one of Iceland's most unforgettable sights. A team of experts studies the lights and cloud forecasts to find the best spot for a sighting on the day of the tour. But as the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, sightings can not be guaranteed.
