Reykjavik Excursions, Iceland’s leading tour operator, is now offering day trips to the newly opened Fontana geothermal spa in combination with a Þingvellir tour.
The tour takes visitors to Laugarvatn, about a 60 minute drive from Reykjavík, where the newly opened Fontana geothermal spa is located. For almost a hundred years, Laugarvatn locals have been enjoying the healing powers of the natural steam baths, where geothermal heat simmers directly from the ground.
The Fontana geothermal spa, located in Laugarvatn, is composed of a series of interconnected baths and steam rooms, specially designed to create a unique experience. Grates in the floor of the steam rooms allow guests to see the natural hot spring as it flows under the rooms straight from the ground, creating a natural experience.
In addition, the tour takes visitors to Þingvellir National Park, where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet – Þingvellir is also a site of great historical and cultural importance as Iceland’s first parliament was established there around 930.
All of Reykjavik Excursions’ tours are guided by professional guides in English, and many are also guided in German, French and Scandinavian.
The company operates one of the biggest bus fleets in Iceland making the company one of the largest organisers of tours both for individuals and groups in Iceland. Furthermore, Reykjavik Excursions has just fitted all of its coaches with wireless Internet, so you can access online services on the go.
