A new geothermal spa has opened in the small town of Laugarvatn, just an hour from Iceland’s capital, on the popular Golden Circle route. The Fontana Spa, which opened for business in June, is composed of a series of interconnected baths and steam rooms, specially designed to create a unique spa experience.
The facility consists of three geothermal heated baths, a sauna, a warm sand beach, and direct access to Lake Laugarvatn, alongside which it is located. The facility’s three steam rooms are located over a natural hot spring that has been used for decades. Specially designed grates in the floor allow guests to see the hot spring as it flows under the rooms straight from the ground.
Stone artwork created by renowned Icelandic artist Erla Thorarinsdottir, surrounds the outdoor mineral baths that are filled with natural spring water and heated via geothermal hot springs. There is also a cafe on site that focuses on healthy refreshments and locally produced delicacies.
Furthermore, to highlight the opening of the new spa, Icelandair is now offering a package holiday that includes a trip to the newly opened Fontana spa, as well as the Golden Circle tour. The package offers travellers return flights, three nights accommodation at the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica or Natura Hotel, a Golden Circle tour and admission to the Fontana Spa.
The package deal is available from Icelandair’s three UK gateways; Glasgow, Manchester, and London Heathrow. The travel period is from September to November and must be booked before August 31st.
