The name Olkelda translates to "ale spring" in Icelandic, although the water in the spring is not alcoholic. The name is actually the Icelandic word used for mineral springs, meaning that Olkelda by the farm in Snaefellsnes is one of several in Iceland.

A tap is located by the mineral spring, allowing visitors to taste the natural mineral water. The water in Olkelda is excellent for drinking and is said to have healing properties. Discover this area in more depth on a tour of Snaefellsnes or on a self-drive tour.

Mineral Springs

The water in Olkelda is naturally carbonated, meaning it contains carbon dioxide gas that dissolves into the water underground. As a result, when the water emerges from the spring, it carries the dissolved carbon dioxide with it, meaning it's natural mineral water. This gives the water a fizzy sensation when consumed.

Mineral springs such as Olkelda can be found all over the world, but some may contain significant amounts of harmful dissolved minerals, such as arsenic, and are therefore dangerous to drink from.

When visiting Olkelda to taste the water, it's important to note that the carbonation levels may vary over time, and the intensity of the fizziness may differ depending on the specific conditions of the spring at any given time.
