In harmony with the tides and seasons
What’s unique about Hvammsvik Hot Springs is that they are part of a 1200-acre private estate that offers you complete freedom to explore and experience all our surroundings far away from the city life yet only a 45-minute picturesque drive from Reykjavik. You will immerse yourself in hot springs all year round, right on the ocean’s edge. Some of our hot springs will fill up as they are submerged in high tide, giving you an ever-changing experience.
We offer eight natural hot springs of varying temperatures, a steam cave, and outdoor relaxation areas. We have brand new facilities yet inspired by the history of Hvammsvik that dates back to the 12th century. You can even try out our outdoor changing facilities, where you will shower under the open sky. An exploration of Hvammsvík Hot Springs will leave you both relaxed and invigorated.
Pure, Salty, and Good
At Hvammsvík Hot Springs, you are immersed in a perfect fusion of geothermal water, flowing from our source 1400 meters underground, with seawater straight from the Atlantic ocean. The steady stream of this unique blend of water, between pools, over their edges, and back into the sea ensures optimum water quality and cleanliness.
After a soak in the Hot Springs, we recommend you try some delicious, light dishes inspired by our surroundings at our bistro. The seafood soup is a favorite or our infamous algae/ginger shot!
In harmony with nature – the Northern Lights!
Our aim at Hvammsvik Hot Springs is to give our guests an authentic Icelandic nature experience. The area is rich in local wildlife, with over 30 different types of birds that reside in and around Hvammsvik. Wild sheep roam around in the summer, and if lucky, you might spot an Arctic Fox. Quite a few elves are said to reside in the rocks and hills of the nature resort! Hvammsvík has its share of spectacular northern lights from October through April.
A place in history
Hvammsvík is a historic landmark first discovered by the Vikings 1000 years ago as recorded in Landnáma, the Icelandic book of settlers dating back to the 11th century. No wonder they chose Hvammsvík, given its incredible landscape, natural harbor, geothermal heat, and wildlife.
