Relax with a back, foot, or full-body massage, in the massage room or out by the lagoon.

  • Bathes were quieter and less expensive than the famous Blue Lagoon. There is a two relaxing natural bathing pols with beautiful view of volcano (no power plant as in Blue Lagoon). Two saunas where the water from the underground hot springs go through holes in floor. Nice cafe with reasonable price, selection of soups, sandwiches, homemade pastries, and cakes. In shower room we found private shower rooms, shampoo, body lotion all provided free of charge. But most important, just a few people around (no crowd).
  • We stumbled across this place on our road trip. Really awesome place, feels more authentic and way less hectic than Blue Lagoon. Great way to relax in the North if you've been driving around the country for days.
