Hellulaug Hot Spring

If you want to enjoy the beauty of Icelandic nature from a nice and cosy spot, then Hellalaug Hot Springs is the perfect place.

This gem is hidden from people’s eyes but that doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy your time in the hot geothermal water.

There is no entrance fee for the Hellulaug hot spring but at the parking spot, there is a canister where you can put a symbolic fee that will be used for maintaining the hot spring.

The water is changed regularly and the hot spring is cleaned to meet the requirements and quality standards for hot pools. There are no changing facilities so you have to change in the car.

Even if you probably have heard that Vikings used to bathe naked, wear your swimsuit no matter if there are other people in the hot spring or not.

The hot spring is all-natural and it is 60 cm deep and 3 to 4 meters wide. The water is constantly at 38°C (100°F) so it is the perfect temperature for relaxing and enjoying the view over the beach, ocean, and the mountains from Vatnsfjörður fjord.

You can soak in the Hellulaug hot spring all year round as there are no restrictions of any kind. Just be careful and take warm clothes and towels with you no matter the season, Iceland is colder than a temperate country.

The Hellulaug is close to the Vatnsfjörður beach and to get there from Reykjavik you have to take the Ring Road northbound. When you pass Bifröst you have to turn left on Road 60 which will get you straight to the Hellulaug hot spring.

You have to be careful when driving on this road because is a gravel road. In the end, the view and the relaxation you will get in the hot spring are well worth the drive. Follow the GPS coordinates to get there easier: 65.57715, -23.15948.
