Before heading to Fontana’s natural steam baths, this fantastic day tour takes you around the Golden Circle to see three of Iceland’s highlights, Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area, and Thingvellir National Park.
The original sauna was built in the 1920s and was little more than a shack with two compartments, built above the hot spring that bubbles and gurgles below the ground. Today, a modern complex welcomes you to relax with various hot tubs and steam baths naturally heated by Icelandic hot springs.
Upon arrival in Fontana, you will take a short walk with a local person to a nearby natural hot spring used as a regional natural bakery for the village. You will get to know how to bake a loaf of bread in a hot spring and watch while they dig up a typical Icelandic rye bread that has been slowly baked in the hot spring. Before dipping into the Fontana hot tubs and enjoying the natural steam baths, you will be offered to taste the rye bread.
At Fontana, you can have drinks while relaxing in the hot spring water and enjoy the spectacular view.
It goes without saying that the Golden Circle is worth exploring. Fontana Wellness makes the sightseeing extra special. Geothermal hot pools built on ancient hot springs, with the possibility of dipping a toe or the whole body into the cold Laugarvatn Lake as well? Count us in!
