Visit West Iceland from Reykjavik

This West Iceland tour whisks you away from the capital city to highlight the natural beauty and cultural insights. Bask in the best of the west, from the hot springs of Krauma to the traditional cuisine of western Iceland.

To immerse in the warm water of an outdoor geothermal pool is an iconic experience in Iceland that you cannot miss; it is simultaneously energizing and serene. There is nothing the local population appreciates more…except, perhaps, to enjoy an excellent local dinner!

The calming geothermal baths at Krauma are situated at Europe’s most powerful hot spring, Deildartunguhver. Located only 97 km (60 miles) from Reykjavik, Krauma offers a perfect escape into nature.

In the same geothermally active Reykholtsdalur valley, the horse farm Sturlu Reykir has its private hot spring. This spring provides the farmers with free heating for their farm and an alternative fuel-conserving method for cooking.

A Unique Iceland Food Tour

At Sturlu Reykir, you taste traditionally-baked hot spring Icelandic rye bread (“hverabraud”). This dense and sweet rye bread is often served with butter, smoked lamb, or pickled herring.

At Krauma, you’ll experience nature’s most majestic, observing phenomena usually hidden below ground. About 180 liters (50 US gallons) of close to boiling water emerge naturally from the ground every second.

To achieve the perfect bathing temperature, the hot water is mixed with pure ice-cold water from the neighboring Ok, the smallest glacier in Iceland.

Krauma offers five warm, soothing natural geothermal baths (all at slightly different temperatures), a cold tub to get your blood circulation going, two calming steam baths, and a relaxation room.

Finally, you will enjoy a delightful meal with fresh local farm-produced ingredients to complete the experience before heading back to Reykjavik.
