I understand that landowners want to make a living and the entrance fee is far from expensive but the area has been completely ruined. Where once upon a time one could lay in the pool and imagine seeing Grettir from the Icelandic Sagas crawling into...More

Grettislaug is a small, quiet hotpot, found at the end of long local road. In the summer, any car can get to it but in the winter it might be harder for basic cars to reach. It is nothing fancy but is well maintained and...More

This pool is quite frequented all the time, so don't expect a calm and intimate atmosphere there. The water comes indeed from a natural hot spring, but the two big pools are built (with ladders, etc.) and look far from "natural". No changing room though,...More

You have to drive a long way out of town to get to this spot frequented by the locals. It is not expensive, but there are no changing rooms (just some logs to hide behind while you change into your swimsuit). The toilets are adequate....More

A story that every Icelander knows is here connected to this experience. A warm pool to relax in right by the sea like the historic hero Grettir “Sterki” Ásmundarson did gives you a fun memory to keep.

We camped here and soaked in the hot spring pool. The property is right on the water, and you can see Drangey Island from the site. The community room and bathrooms are inside turf houses, and are well kept. Showers and bathrooms are included with...More

The pool is nothing like the Blue Lagoon, Myvatn Nature Bath or the many swimming pools across the country. This one is a rock-lined thermal pool with VERY hot water. There is algae in it, which is kind of strange, but the setting is so...More

The guy who runs this is place is very friendly and funny. There are two hotsprings, a pretty hot one and a colder one. Both were very nice and are definitely worth the (low) entrance fee! We saw 8 people while we were there (+-...More

The two pools here are quite nice. The larger one is the warmer, particularly at the north end. The price is decent and the owner very nice. The pools do have a lot of algae, so that was a little off-putting, but otherwise it was...More
