Visit the Beer Spa in North Iceland


1-2 Hour


All Year



Minimum Age



Experience deep relaxation, fantastic views and delicious drinks on a visit to Bjórböðin, the Beer Spa in North Iceland. This is a brilliant opportunity for those seeking a luxurious break when sightseeing around the country, as well as guests looking for novel experiences in Iceland.

Bjórböðin is located in the charming village of Árskógssandur. The place is famed for both its vicinity to Hrísey Island and its local brewery, Bruggsmiðjan, making it the perfect spot for a beer-oriented health spa.

As you arrive, you will be greeted by the spa’s friendly staff who will give you a towel and show you to a locker room. Then you will be escorted to a private room where you’ll find your own beer tub where you will be left to soak for twenty-five blissful minutes, beer in hand.

The tub is filled with beer, water, hops and yeast, warmed to a soothing 37 – 39°C. Aside from the sheer fun and novelty, beer baths are said to be beneficial for healthy skin and hair, muscle relaxation and lowering blood pressure. Do note, however, that the bath beer itself is not drinkable, but a tap next to your bath will provide you with cold, delicious beer from the nearby brewery.

There are two options available for the beer baths; a single experience for lone travellers, or a romantic couple’s bath.

There are also two Cedar-wood hot tubs on the scenic outside terrace, both of which are filled with normal hot water. Bathing here, you will have incredible views over Hrísey Island, Þorvaldsdalur Valley and the surrounding mountains. However, at one point, you’ll likely want to drag yourself away to get a sweat in the sauna.

After you’ve spent some time in deep relaxation, you’ll no doubt be in the mood for a drink and a bite to eat. Thankfully, a visit to Bjórböðin’s bar and restaurant is sure to wet your palette. The restaurant offers a fine selection of dishes—from deep-fried camembert to traditional fish and chips—and, of course, glasses of locally-brewed Kaldi beers.

Treat yourself with a visit to Bjórböðin, the Beer Spa in North Iceland, and experience relaxation and luxury in a fun and beautiful setting. Book your experience today!
