About Laugarvatn Fontana
As with all other regions, hot springs found here have been used by locals for domestic and leisure purposes since old times. Laugarvatn Fontana consists of three geothermal baths of varying size, depth, and temperature, so every bath offers a distinct feeling. A soak in these mineral-rich waters will provide a balmy and comforting experience, making you want to stay longer. In between, you can take a dip in the cold waters of the lake as well!
To elevate your wellness journey further, Laugarvatn Fontana houses two steam rooms built right above the hot springs to treat all your senses in unison. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the vapor while listening to the sound and smell of the boiling spring water beneath.
To top it all off is a Finnish-style sauna with a challenging temperature between 80⁰C-90⁰C. While smaller in comparison to its counterparts, Laugarvatn Fontana sure knows how to offer you variety!
Although contemporary, this spa likes to stick to old roots to bring you authentic experiences. Their geothermal bakery is proof of it. The Rye Bread available here is baked using geothermal heat by storing the sealed dough underground for 24 hours. You can book a tour to see how it’s done too. The wafting smell of this delicacy will surely warm up your taste buds, and the iconic taste will hit the right mark! Enjoy it along with many other yummy snacks made using fresh local ingredients.
You can combine your visit to the Laugarvatn Fontana with a tour exploring the Golden Circle. It includes three iconic locations in Iceland; Thingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss Waterfall. After all, a refreshing bath is an answer to soothe yourself after a tiring day of exploration. For thrill-seekers, snorkeling tours are also available.
