Hellulaug

  • The pool Hellulaug in the southern shore of West Fjords is a warm and delightful pool.

 

In Iceland, you can find many small geothermal pools. Something a lot of visitors and tourists are both interested in seeing and willing to dip into.  Some of the pools only fit four to five people.  Some are even so small that they only fit two persons.  But you can also find pools that are big enough for you and a few of yours friends. The pool Hellulaug in the southern shore of West Fjords is a warm and delightful pool.

Right there on the West Fjord Ring Road

Located only a few hundred meters from the camping site Flokalundur in the famous Vatnsdalur, where the first settler in Iceland stayed for a winter.  The small pool is always open with its endless flow of warm water all year long. Anyone passing by can take a dip in the comfortable water. The water in the pool is 38 degrees centigrade and the pool is around 3 to 4 meters in diameter.

No admission fee and no service

You need to walk down a small cliff from the small parking lot by road Vestfjarðarvegur nr. 60 which is the southern part of the West Fjord ring road.  A road that is part of the West Fjord scenic route that takes you through some magnificent landscape. There is no admission and also no place to change from your cloth to your swimming suit. There is no service, just the very nice natural bath.
