Entry to West Iceland’s Krauma Nature Baths
Unwind amidst the wild Icelandic nature at the Krauma Nature Baths. Take a dip in warm waters originating from a hot spring which has been cooled by a nearby glacier. This luxurious spa is the ideal stop for any traveller wishing to experience complete relaxation in a spectacular natural setting.
The mineral-rich geothermal water at Krauma comes directly from Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring. The hot tubs are then cooled with glacial water originating from the former glacier, Ok, ensuring the perfect bathing temperature.
As you bathe in one of Krauma’s five state-of-the-art heated pools, revel in the beauty of West Iceland’s landscapes, with views over the mighty hot spring and the beautiful mountains that lie beyond it.
Those brave enough can cool themselves down in the spa’s plunge pool, filled with ice-cold glacial water. Ice baths are believed to help improve blood flow and heal aching muscles; perfect after a day of hiking and sightseeing in West Iceland.
At Krauma’s two saunas, the steam—which rises directly from the geothermal source below—is combined with specially scented oils to offer a complete revitalising experience. Krauma’s true indulgence, however, is the relaxation room. Sit, lie or simply be at peace in this calming setting and listen to soothing music as the fireplace crackles.
Before entering the water, you can order drinks at the front desk. A beer or spritzer is best enjoyed in the baths themselves, after all. Following your relaxing soak, you can treat your taste buds at the Krauma restaurant. The extensive menu of Icelandic cuisine is prepared using only the finest, locally sourced farm ingredients.
Truly relaxed, full and rejuvenated, you are ready to continue your Icelandic adventure. Nearby, you’ll find the beautiful waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss, as well as the historic Reykholt village.
