About The Forest Lagoon

Forest Lagoon’s 1.300 square-meter complex includes a bistro, two infinity pools with two swim-up bars, a cold tub, and a sauna. The facility can accommodate up to 200 visitors at a time, and we will be open seven days a week from 10:00 in the mornings until 24:00 during the evenings.

The geothermal water

The spa’s pools are heated with all-natural geothermal water sourced from the mountain behind the Forest lagoon, Vaðlaheiði. The water was discovered during a tunnel project and now has a greater purpose and a healing power.
