Secret Lagoon 

The Secret Lagoon, known locally as Gamla Laugin, is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland. It was made in 1891 at Hverahólmi, a geothermal area near Flúðir.

What makes our place unique are the rich natural resources of warm water coming from hot springs. Vaðmálahver, Básahver, or Litli Geysir (active geyser which spouts every few minutes, showing off for the guests), provide 100% of the water supply in the lagoon.

The pool water flows continuously, and it takes only 24 hours for its complete replacement. Warm, clean, and rich in sulfur, it stays at 38-40 Celsius all year round.

We have kept Secret Lagoon natural, simple, and unique for you to get the authentic Icelandic experience.

You can enjoy the new facility next to the swimming pool. We kept the showers in traditional Icelandic style, separate for men and women. Our Bistro offers snacks and drinks, but please note that we do not serve warm meals.
