About
Experience nature from its core by bathing in the geothermal baths at Krauma. The hot water originates in Europe’s most powerful hot spring Deildartunguhver, at a temperature of 100°C (212°F). To achieve the perfect bathing temperature we mix the hot water with cold water from OK. Krauma offers five relaxing natural geothermal baths, a cold tub to get your blood circulation going, two calming saunas and a relaxation room where you can rest by the fireplace while listening to soothing music.

    Beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing
    My family and I stopped here on a Sunday afternoon and it was better than expected. We had no reservation but easily walked up, and there were never more than 10 people in the pools. We loved the different pool temps to choose from (including the cold plunge) and that the sauna and steam room were included. The view is gorgeous, the water is divine, and we had to drag ourselves away. Price was very affordable, but bring your own towel!
    Thanks for coming and the review, tessavb89

    Convenient and intimate
    Krauma was very easy to find and paired beautifully with our jaunt to view Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls. Five pools, infrared room and steam room. Very clean and quite uncrowded early in the day. Shower and shampoo toiletries provided, plastic bag for wet suits. Can rent towel and bathrobe. Cafe on site, though we didn’t eat there. Lovely experience!

    Geothermal relaxation away from crowds
    Geothermal baths, with red sauna, steam room and relaxing room. We spent over 2 hours and loved every part. Great service due to a delay there were no issues moving our reservation back. Very quiet would highly recommend. Hire bathrobes or bring your own. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hairdryer provided. Bring your own towel and flip flops. Order a drink and enjoy in bath with stunning views.

    Krauma Geothermal Bath should not be missed when visiting this area of Iceland
    Highly recommend! Lovely geothermal baths of varying temperatures plus a steam bath and sauna. Small, we were not there during peak season so it was not crowded. I don’t know how many visitors they allow per time slot but it was very nice to be there with only 10 or 12 others. Locker rooms were nice and well equipped with nice toiletries and hair dryers. We didn’t visit the restaurant so I cannot speak to the quality.

    Perfect for a January Evening.
    We’ve been to many of the geothermal baths in Iceland, both “wild” and “fancy” and our visit to Krauma was just what we wanted on our winter trip. We began with a delicious dinner at the restaurant and finished the evening outside in the baths while the northern lights shone from above. I really like that it’s not a big facility and given our weeknight. Is it in January, we had each pool we went in to ourselves. It was awesome.Really glad we went.

    Lovely stay for a few hours
    Lovely stay for a few hours at the Krauma baths. We were there on a Friday in February and it was not crowded. The bathrooms/shower area were clean with hairdryers, shampoo, conditioner all provided. Towels and bathrobes are not free if you need them. Definitely bring sandals/flip flops as you need to walk from one pool to the next and also to the sauna/steam room. We thought the steam room was not steamy enough. Sauna was fine, could have been warmer, but it was good. The relaxation room was especially nice with the fireplace in the middle. You have to knock on the glass door by reception if you want drink service outside. Water is free and is sitting outside for you to take. Overall a nice place. And we had lunch there afterwards - all good! Especially great cappuccino.

    Perfect way to relax and enjoy natural hot springs
    My husband and I were traveling to a remote cabin and this hot spring was on the way. What a fantastic stop on our journey! The facility is peaceful, beautiful, clean and offered all the amenities you would need. There are different pools (all different temps), a cold plunge, a sauna, a steam room, and a relaxation room with a wood-burning stove. The changing rooms had free locking lockers, showers with soap, shampoo and conditioner, and hair dryers. Our experience was very relaxing, and I would highly recommend it! After our time in the hot springs, we also had lunch at the restaurant. Although a little on the pricey side, the food was delicious and high-quality.

Enjoyed the pools at Krauma. They have different pools with different temperatures so you can start out on the cooler and move into the hotter and vice versa. They also have a really nice relaxing room with a fire pit in it. It wasn’t crowded. The only thing is bring your own towel or there is a fee.
