Like the rest of the hot springs in Westfjords, Nauteyrarlaug is also a hidden hot spring that you will have it all by yourself. The water at Nauteyrarlaug is between 40 and 42°C and usually is very clean.
The hot spring is made of rock and stones and it suffered some modifications some years ago. The water that used to feed the sot spring came directly from a borehole located near the pool, but because a fish company redirected the water to their fish hatchery, the hot spring is now fed through a pipe. There is a small cabin near the hot spring that can be used as a changing room.
