Drangsnes hot tubs

Drangsnes hot tubs are the new trend when visiting the Westfjords. In the Westfjords you will find a little town with about 67-70 inhabitants.

The town is approximately 30 km away from Hólmavik which is another nice stop that you can take. The Drangsnes pools are the local attraction and they consist of three tubs filled up with natural hot water from a nearby borehole.

Locals discovered the hot spring in 1997 and they immediately set up the pools for people to enjoy the rejuvenating warm water and the view over the Atlantic and fjords.

The hot tubs at Drangsnes are aligned side by side and there is also a changing facility near them. People put also a garbage bin so people can clean the place after they use it.

The place is in a remote area, far away from crowds and it is well maintained by the locals. Drangsnes is open all year round and it is free of charge. Local people like to go there and relax so you may find them there.

Drangsnes village is located near a curvy cliff and the views from there are indescribable. If you are lucky you can spot some whales in the fjord while you rejuvenate in the hot spring.
