Krauma is a hot spring spa with a cluster of six baths, all except one being warm. Visitors can soak in the geothermally heated pools for relaxation and then go to a dip in the cold one for an adrenaline rush! As the spring maintains a swift flow of 180 liters per second, water is constantly replaced naturally, eliminating the need for purification using chemicals.
Krauma’s setting is a magnificent fusion of natural beauty and sophisticated modernity. The sleek and contemporary-styled building is equipped with comfortable amenities, while the baths are designed to complement the natural appeal of the surrounding. Located in a rugged Icelandic landscape, it is only an hour drive away from the capital city of Reykjavík.
The Deildartunguhver Spring, considered the most powerful on the entire continent, was initially used by locals for washing and heating purposes. In addition, locals have also enjoyed the privilege of obtaining the geothermally-heated water for saunas, hot-water showers, and cooking in their houses. Icelanders have also recognized the healing powers of these hot springs, harnessing their wonders for many centuries.
Today, Krauma has opened up the opportunity for locals and visitors alike to experience this jewel of Iceland with a modern touch. Looking for a tranquil spot to rediscover your soul or create romantic moments with your special someone? Krauma will exceed your expectations.
