Information about Strútslaug

Strutslaug (also known as Holmsarbotnalaug) is a geothermal pool in the South Highlands, north of Myrdalsjokull glacier and close to Torfajokull glacier volcano.

The pool is located at the side of a cold water river and split in two parts by a wall of natural stone. Its size is about 8,5 x 5 meters, with a maximum depth of about 50 cm. Strutslaug is an ideal place for relaxing in geothermal waters, and enjoying peace and serenity, surrounded by the stunning landscape of the Icelandic highlands. Note that there are no changing rooms at the site, and we also recommend not moving too much in the pool, as the soil is muddy.
