Hvammsvík Natural Hot Springs - #1 Best thing to do in the world in 2023 by Timeout

Hvammsvík Hot Springs is the #1 place to visit in the world in 2023 according to Timeout 

An ever changing experience. In harmony with the tides and seasons.

Whats 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 find yourself immersed in perfectly warm hot springs all year round right on the edge of the ocean.  In fact some of our hot springs will actually fill up as they are submerged in high tide giving you and ever changing experience. 

Recharge, naturally! We offer eight natural hot springs of varying temperatures, a steam cave and outdoor relaxation areas. We have brand new facilities yet inspired by 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 very own 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 ocean, 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!

Come immerse yourself in unfiltered Icelandic nature, only 45 minutes from Reykjavík city center.

In harmony with nature

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. Best time to witness the aurora borealis

is from October through April.

A place in History

Hvammsvík is a historical landmark that was 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.
