Blue Lagoon is far the most famous hot spring in Iceland but the country has many other places to enjoy the geothermal waters. And I need, to be honest, here I think I liked the Secret Lagoon better.

The Secret Lagoon waters are much hotter than the Blue Lagoon ones and it was very relaxing there. The Secret Lagoon water is clear while the  Blue Lagoon one is white and has silica in it. I did not wet my hair there but I don’t think that it would be damaged anyway – I was traumatized after the Blue Lagoon experience.  

The only negative point to the Secret lagoon is that it has some big stones under the water which you can’t see during the night. I banged my knee several times. On the other hand, they can be used as seats 😉  

Be aware – Two of our group were not feeling well after the Secret Lagoon experience. The water is very hot and the blood pressure can go down dramatically.
