The Canyon baths feature a couple of geothermal pools of varying temperatures of 30-41⁰C, perfectly welcoming for a soothing soak. If you visit it during winter, you will find the warmth particularly wonderful, contrasting the chilly atmosphere. You would also be delighted to know that there is also a cold-water spring running at a temperature of 10⁰C!
Húsafell Canyon Baths are a sustainable construction, built accommodating to the rich natural landscapes of the area. The pools are made using naturally sourced materials like flagstone, sticking to a traditional method used by ancestors. Even the bathhouse in the premises is constructed out of reclaimed wood, and the hooks to hold your towels are actually former horseshoes!
A luxurious soak in the Húsafell Canyon Baths is best experienced after a day of exploration when your muscles need to unwind and relax. So, why not enjoy a wilderness tour discovering many hidden gems and other attractions in the remote Húsafell before visiting the baths.
A short drive from Húsafell Activity Centre will lead us to the trailhead where the tour begins. We will show you around and explain the beautiful elements in the region to help you get the best out of the visit. The picturesque Langifoss Waterfall, a stream of glacial meltwater, and the site of the dead Okjökull glacier are some prominent landmarks you will come across here.

You have to embark on a short hike and descend a flight of steps to reach the baths. But the warmth of the water and the mesmerizing background will make up for any fatigue you feel. Don’t forget to bring your favourite drink to accompany these best moments in your life!
