We were on the fence with visiting this spa, but so glad we did. We read this was the best alternative to Blue Lagoon, and would have to agree! The pools were wonderful, relaxing, and beautifully lit at nighttime. Definitely make time for a stop...More

There are so many amazing things in Iceland, but this was one of the highlights of our trip. The ground in spots is literally boiling. We did the bread tour and used the pools. If I ever make it to Iceland again, I’d choose this...More
