  • Ok so after going to Blue Lagoon and Secret Garden our group of 4 was looking for something a little more private and scenic to go along with our hot spring experience. This place is all about the tim...  more »
  • I was told that we were not allowed to skip Seljavallalaug sure. It is a side road (242) of ringroad 1 so easy to find. At the end of this road you can park your car and then you run straight ahead on the left until you're there. At most 25 minutes. The water is very nice and warm and we were lucky that and the Sun was shining and there just people left so it was fairly quiet. The mountains surrounding it are also beautiful with a beautiful river. We have enjoyed it.

  • The drive in was almost impassable. If you're driving a small car like we were, be VERY careful. After you park, there's a 25 minute walk alongside a cold fast flowing river until you arrive st the po...  more »

  • Nice easy walk with beautiful scenery. No problem for children. Pool is warm but not quite warm enough. Also there is some algae in the pool but it's not too bad. It would probably be better for swimming if it had a higher rate of circulation with more hot water.
  • Beautiful location and pool. Must have been amazing back in the day when there was upkeep. It was a short 15min hike and a great location. However the water was really not very warm except one corner, the change rooms were absolutely disgusting. Overall wish I had not gone swimming as it just felt dirty.
  • A beautiful 20 minute hike leads to the pool, which adds to the excitement of swimming there! There's also a small trail that gives a top view of the pool and surrounding area. I absolutely loved the pool! The deeper part of it is hotter.
  • It's about a 15 minute hike that crosses 2 small streams to get to the pool. This is truly an otherworldly looking place, hidden behind mountains in a private crevasse. I was here in late January for sunset and there were about 10 people in the pool and almost 20 walking around taking pictures. It's not the most private setting, but still worth the hike if you are in the area!
  • Wow, this place is great! I literally could not take enough pictures. Don't worry about the changing rooms - they're perfectly functional and have good clothing hooks to boot. The pool isn't exactly steaming hot but the view is 💯.
