Rye Bread Experience

We make the bread following an old recipe, dig it into the warm ground and bake it for 24 hours, 

then we dig the bread up, and it's delicious! Come and see for your self!

Experience geothermal energy first hand and try our geothermal baked bread!

We welcome you all year round to experience our geothermal bakery that starts every day at 11.45 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. from our reception at Laugarvatn Fontana.

Between the 1st of June and the 30th of September, we will add the third departure at 10:15 a.m. each day.

Guests experience the geothermal bakery first hand and see as we dig out a pot of fresh bread from the hot black sand. Guests are offered to taste the bread, served hot from the ground with Icelandic butter. This is something you should not miss!

The tour is between 30-40 minutes long. The tour is partly outside and we recommend our guests to dress according to the weather. We recommend our guests to arrive 10-15 minutes before departure time.
