Itinerary

Introduction

Krauma is located near Reykholt in the region of Borgarfjordur, West Iceland. It is only a 1.20-hour drive from Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavík (about 97 kilometers/60 miles). Deildartunguhver hot spring is in the vicinity and Hraunfossar & Barnafoss Waterfalls only a 20-minute drive away. Krauma is a great add-on when visiting these sites. Relax & rejuvenate in the geothermal waters and soak in nature.

At Krauma Baths & Spa, you will find five warm relaxing natural geothermal baths, one cold tub to facilitate blood circulation, two saunas, and one relaxation room with a fireplace and soothing music. Krauma is certainly one of the best places to have a peaceful and refreshing day in Iceland.

The baths at Krauma have different shapes: two of them are spacious, two others have a cochlea shape and the last warm bath is a large plate where people can sunbathe while enjoying the hot water. The cold bath, which is approximately between 5°C and 8°C is the perfect way to get your blood circulation going. Krauma also has two steam baths with outdoor showers. There, you can lie down on timber benches and enjoy the steam warming up and softening your skin.

Krauma means to simmer and when Iceland’s most powerful hot spring meets the country’s smallest glacier, it makes a combination of the perfect temperature to bathe in, relaxing warm water. Deildartunguhver has indeed the highest flow rate of all hot springs in Europe. It pumps about 180 liters of water per second! The waters are then piped to the nearby towns of Borgarnes and Akranes for human consumption. This natural boiler is a great environmentally-friendly heating system and the best natural way to deliver hot water to homes in West Iceland.
