Entry to Laugarvatn Fontana Geothermal Spa
With its convenient location next to the Golden Circle, its pools of various temperatures and many steam rooms, Fontana Laugarvatn Spa is an excellent choice for travellers to the region looking to unwind amidst Iceland’s spectacular nature.
The Spa is located next to Lake Laugarvatn, a geothermal body of water near a small village of the same name. It is less than an hour’s drive from Iceland’s capital, Reykjavík and only a short drive away from the attractions that make up the Golden Circle sightseeing route.
Laugarvatn Fontana Spa is a great place to unwind after a long day of sightseeing. You could also complement a hiking trip in the area with a visit or spend an afternoon there, especially when the weather hasn’t been the best. The Spa boasts a wealth of unique qualities that create a perfect environment to relax and reinvigorate.
Here, you’ll find steam baths, a Finnish-style sauna, and outdoor mineral baths that vary in depth, size and temperature. There is also the opportunity to take a dip in Lake Laugarvatn to cool down, which you can get to either through the Spa’s pier or a natural black sand beach.
All of the hot water and steam come from natural hot springs. In fact, the steam bath is built directly over one. The steam that emanates from the hot springs travels through grates in the floor, allowing visitors to both hear and smell the boiling natural hot spring right underneath them.
Drinks are available for purchase at the Spa, which you can savour while looking at the fantastic lake-view. The Spa is also open year-round, perfect for those enjoying the long days under the midnight sun, as well as making it a wonderful place in the winter to watch for the northern lights.
