Embrace the bizarre with this unconventional spa tour, in which you revitalise your skin and health in a bath of beer. This tour is excellent for those who love relaxation, new experiences, unique culture, and of course, beer.

This strange adventure begins when you are picked up in Akureyri, the ‘Capital of the North’. Once you and your small group are all gathered, you will head out to the village of Árskógssandur, by Dalvík, which is just twenty minutes drive away and the location of the spa.

Either alone or with one other person, you will be invited to a wooden tub filled with young beer, hops and live yeast. As unusual as it sounds, many claim that a beer bath such as this does wonders for your skin and revitalises your health. The beer you bask in is, of course, undrinkable, but you will be provided with a pint on the side to help you relax and embrace the experience.

It should be noted that while eighteen- and nineteen-year-olds are welcome on this tour, the legal age for drinking in Iceland is twenty, so they will have to skip the pint.

The brewer of the beer you will relax in and drink is local craft brewery Kaldi. One of the most famous Icelandic labels, you are sure to enjoy the unique flavours imbued in the liquid. Getting tipsy off of Icelandic craft beer is also very easy to frame as a cultural activity, as microbreweries are incredibly popular around the island.

You’ll stay in the beer tub for twenty-five minutes, before moving to a relaxation room for another twenty-five. After that, you have an hour to enjoy the rest of the spa. There are other hot tubs (with just geothermal water in them) you could enjoy, which boast beautiful views over the spectacular fjord Eyjafjörður, as well as saunas. There is also a restaurant on-site that you can visit and make the most of.

After two hours at the Beer Spa, you will return to your vehicle and be whisked back to Akureyri. No doubt, you will feel incredibly refreshed, revitalised, entertained after your time in the Beer Spa.

Do not miss this unusual but rewarding experience in North Iceland.

The Beer Spa experience was out of this world!. We were picked from our hotel right on time. Our Guide and driver Hlynur was a wealth of knowledge of Iceland's history, answering all our questions along the journey to the Beer Spa location. The Spa experience itself was surprisingly relaxing and warm, enjoying the beer as well. We spent half an hour in the beer spa before wrapping ourselves in the supplied robes and heading up to the relaxation room for a short lower leg massage and soothing music. My husband has a problem relaxing in these environment so we didn't stay long. We headed down to the infra-red sauna, before heading outside to the heated spa's outside under the stars. It was too early to see the northern lights at the time we were outside (7pm), but just relaxing in the warm spa with the cool air tantalising our faces made for an exceptional evening. We chose to eat at the bar/restaurant at the spa and the food was made fresh and delicious. The whole experience was exceptional. The service was exceptional from the staff at the Beer spa as well as our Guide. I would highly recommend this experience!

This was an amazing day! We really weren't sure what to expect but we were very pleasantly surprised! The guide and driver, Hylnur, was brilliant in giving us tips and chatting to us on the short journey. The spa itself was beautiful - the beer bath was a great experience (and of course we enjoyed drinking the beer too!), the relaxation room was definitely relaxing, and the outdoor hot tub was stunning! It was wonderfully warm and the views were stunning! Everything was very clean and well presented, the beer was delicious and we definitely left feeling relaxed. I highly recommend this trip!
