Difficult to find. No clear markings or signs. Be patient. If you find your way a couple of kilometres off the Ring Road, make it to a parking area. Bring swim wear and a towel. It's a beautiful 20 minute hike through stunning peaceful countryside,...More

This pool was built in 1923 and is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland. The water is a nice ~ 32-34 degrees with "soft" natural water. It is cool to be in a concrete pool that has one side as a mountain! However, the bottom...More

Make no mistake, once you've parked at the end of the gravel track and walked a kilometre to this pool, the location is just breathtaking. But in early August, the last thing we wanted to do was go in the pool itself as it was...More

The drive in was almost impassable. If you're driving a small car like we were, be VERY careful. After you park, there's a 25 minute walk alongside a cold fast flowing river until you arrive st the pool. The walk is very beautiful and easy....More

We were wondering if this pool was really worth it, because we read that the water was rather cold and it was very dirty. Well, it was worth every second over there. The water is not as warm as the natural bads in Blue lagoon...More

You definitely don't want to miss this natural spring pool. It's a short walk to get there, and so relaxing! If you pass it a little bit, you'll get to see a beautiful canyon.

I don't know where the campsite is, but the parking area to the hotspring is about 20-25 minute walk.

If you're concerned about road conditions, check Road.is online. They update it regularly and can give you a good idea of conditions. The secondary or F-Roads really change depending on the time of year.
