Informationen über: Krauma Spa

Unwind in the geothermal waters of Krauma Spa in West Iceland.

The Krauma Spa is a geothermal bath and spa resort in West Iceland. It is located near Europe's highest flowing hot spring, Deildartunguhver.

One of the best ways to visit this Spa is on a self drive tour in Iceland.

Krauma Spa was opened to the public in late 2017 and offers five hot tubs, one cold tub and two steam baths, as well as a relaxation room where you can unwind to soothing music next to a crackling fireplace.

On-Site Facilities

To create the perfect bathing temperature, the spa pumps hot water straight from Deildartunguhver hot spring and cools it down by mixing freezing water from Iceland's smallest glacier Ok. The steam in the steam baths also comes directly from the hot spring and is scented with oils.

A restaurant and a bar are located on-site and provide views of the Deildartunguhver hot spring and the nearby valley. The restaurant serves Icelandic cuisine made from fresh farm-produced ingredients, and the bar offers a wide selection of drinks and snacks.

Krauma Spa and Resort is open all year round and accommodates up to 140 guests at a time. The restaurant seats 70 guests inside and another 60 on the outside terrace when the weather allows.

Nearby Attractions

Krauma Spa is located near some of West Iceland's most popular attractions. Aside from the powerful Deildartunguhver hot spring, visitors in the area can take a short drive to the waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss.

Iceland's largest lava cave, Víðgelmir in the Hallmundarhraun lava field is only a short drive away from Krauma Spa, and so is the country's second largest glacier, Langjökull.

Close by is the historical Reykholt area and the town of Borgarnes. Reykholt houses Snorrastofa, a centre for medieval studies, named after historian, poet and law-speaker Snorri Sturluson, and in Borgarnes, you'll find the Settlement Centre which focuses on the age of settlement in Iceland and Egill Skallagrímsson, a Viking-Era poet and warrior of the Egils Saga fame.
