Soak yourself in a spa, full of beer with this unique tour in north Iceland. Those who love hot spring bathing, but want to try something different, should make sure they book this tour.

Iceland‘s very first beer spa opened in June 2017. The perfect destination for any beer lover, Bjórböðin SPA is located in Árskógssandur in the north of Iceland, close to the town of Akureyri. Since the town of Árskógssandur was already known for its brewery, a beer spa was a logical next step to open up in town to visitors.

In the spa you can soak away the stress of modern life by relaxing in a bath of warm, young beer and live beer yeast. To add to the experience, you can do so with a cold beer in your hand.

The effects of the yeast are very beneficial, with an extremely powerful effect on the body and skin. It is recommended that visitors leave the yeast on their skin to do its magic and that they do not shower for 4 hours afterwards. 

After a 25 minute soak in a private bathtub (that can take one or 2 people), guests are taken to a relaxation area for another 25 minutes. This treatment is both cleansing for the skin and has a very positive effect on health.

Note that the beer in the tub is undrinkable, but there is a draft beer tap alongside every hot tub, for visitors aged 20 and over (the legal drinking age in Iceland). If you are aged over 20, you can help yourself to a cold drink while you bathe.

There is also an outside beer hot tub for bigger groups and a new restaurant with beer-related food on site. 

Try something new and unique, and do it with a beer in hand. Check availability by choosing a date.

Super cool experience! Beer was tasty and the bath super relaxing. Great atmosphere and becasue we booked our tour late in the day and during the off season, we were allowed to stay in the rest area for extra time. Highly recommend!

I very much enjoyed the beer spa. It really made my skin very soft. Having a personal tap while I was in the tub was fantastic. I only wish it had lasted longer!

The Beer Spa is such a great experience! We started at the reception where we got towels and robes and a very professional staff. Then went to the dressing rooms and straight afterwards to the beer baths. The temperature was perfect and it was very comfortable but you also have a beer tab on the side where you can drink as much as you like for that 25 minutes or so. After the spa you go to a relaxing area where the staff will roll you into blankets and you can relax for another 25 minutes. There are also hot tubs outside that you can use afterwards. It was such a great experience and I would recommend this to everyone!
