This is truly magical and once in a life time experience. You will be floating in the Secret Lagoon, a natural hot spring, located in the small village of Fludir. It is the oldest natural swimming pool in Iceland from 1891 and was used to teach the locals to swim until 1947. It has now been fully renovated and reopened. The water in the pool holds 38-40 Celsius (100-104 Fahrenheit) all year and with wonderful natural surroundings and steam rising into the air, it creates an unbelievable magical feeling.
At the swimming pool you will be provided with a floating cap and support for your legs, so you can float in the warm water and relax with the night sky above you. Floating is well known for relieving stress and improving well-being. Your muscle tension, blood pressure and heart rate drop as you get into deep relaxation state. It is known to aid detoxification and help with pain relief, anxiety and insomnia. You will gain clarity, focus and physical renewal. Experts say one hour of floating equals 4 hours of deep sleep !
Adding to the ambiance of the floating experience, you will enjoy listening to relaxing Icelandic music on the underwater loudspeakers while being pampered with 10-15 minute in-water massage. On the perfect winter night sky, the Aurora Borealis may also dance for you and during summer months you will experience long daylight hours. You will get a chance to boil an egg in a natural hot spring and taste rye bread baked in geothermal ground. You will also sample tomatoes and cucumbers from the local greenhouses and taste Icelandic fermented shark with Black Death (schnapps). The Northern Lights is of course a natural phenomena depending on the weather conditions at the time. One thing is guaranteed though - you will leave with truly amazing water experience that will stay with you forever!
