Hot pool Reykjafjarðarlaug

JGFJ+69R, 466 Reykjarfjörður, Iceland

One of my favorite hot springs is located in the Westfjords, in a place called Reykjafjarðarlaug. This hot pool is situated in a rural place with a serene environment and untainted nature, as is the case virtually everywhere in the Westfjords. There are several hot pools that are easily accessible from the main road in the summer.

The modest, naturally occurring hot spot has a temperature range of 50 to 60 °C and is reached by the hot spring that emerges from the hill. After then, the water flows into a second, man-made pool where it cools to a warm but more comfortable temperature.

You can fit there with several friends or another tourist because the pool itself is significantly larger than the natural pools above.

There are restrooms and locker rooms there, however entry is free or voluntary. You may always help the locals who look after and maintain the area.

If you visit, we advise you to check out the nearby abandoned barn or the secret waterfall Fossfjordur, both of which are only a short drive from Reykjafjararlaug.
