Our Hotel
Boutique Hotel · Distinctive Icelandic Experience
Get off the grid at Frost & Fire, a boutique hotel nestled in the geothermal foothills above Hveragerði village on the banks of the Varmá river, only 40 minutes from Iceland’s capital area and only steps away from the quaint village’s heart. With luxury amenities, an exceptional restaurant and some of the best geothermal swimming and bathing facilities in the area, guests are treated to an authentically Icelandic escape like none other.

Frost & Fire offers guests a unique, resort experience
Guests of Frost & Fire enjoy a breakfast like none other. Frost & Fire prides itself on putting together a breakfast spread that showcases some of the greatest hits from Iceland’s culinary past, present and future. The hverabrauð, or hot-spring bread, has been a local delicacy for centuries: a rich, moist rye bread cooked overnight in our very own ancient hot spring or you can try our choice smoked trout, a traditional Icelandic indulgence, from an exclusive supplier in North Iceland.

Our breakfasts rely largely on organic farm produce including organic coffee, tea, cereals, jams, marmalades, honey and breads from local suppliers. Our produce comes from Iceland’s own geothermally heated, eco-friendly greenhouses (the farm of the future!) and our eggs come from free-range, Icelandic hens (a heritage breed from the island’s settlement). And if you’d like to try your hand at geothermal cooking, guests are encouraged to boil their own eggs in our hot spring.

Take a break in our black stone sauna outfitted with wooden benches. It’s the quintessential Nordic way to recharge your batteries for your next outing.

Hot Tubs

There’s nothing like unwinding in the outdoor hot tubs after an exhilarating day of hiking and exploring. And with the tubs right at the riverside there’s always a commanding view to take in. Like all our swimming and bathing facilities, the hot tubs are warmed by geothermal water from our own borehole.

No matter the season, you will find a sense of quiet warmth and relaxation in the thermal waters. Soaking under the midnight sun when the landscape is at its most vibrant is unforgettable, but so is relishing the warm waters when snow covers the ground and the Northern Lights shimmer overhead.

Swimming Pool

The warmed lap pool is 12 meters long and a great spot to take in the surrounding mountains. Like all our swimming and bathing facilities, the pool is warmed by geothermal water from our own borehole.

Thermal River

The hotel is perched on the banks of the river Varmá (literally “warm river), one of the hotel’s most distinctive landmarks. Views of the river and is gentle current are one of the highlights of the hotel’s rooms and restaurant (which is named after the river).

And although it is a remarkably beautiful river, it is also one of the few rivers in Iceland that visitors can bath in (that is, if you’re not looking to freeze your rear end off!). The river is fed by several nearby hot springs, some of which empty directly into the riverbed, which can reach around 18°C in the summertime. It’s an extraordinary experience to wade out into the Varmá on a dark night and submerge yourself in the water’s warm embrace.


Only 40 minutes from Reykjavík you find yourself in Iceland’s otherworldly countryside, where steam rises from the hillsides and the Northern Lights dance overhead.

The area surrounding Frost & Fire is known throughout Iceland for its widespread geothermal activity, which makes it an ideal center for soaking and swimming, thermal greenhouses and, of course, discovering a remarkable landscape of sweeping valleys, gentle foothills, volcanic hot springs, fumaroles and hidden geothermal pools.

Reviews from TripAdvisor

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in January and absolutely loved our stay. The hotel is located in a ravine, which separates it from the little town Hveragerthi and allows you to feel alone with nature. The hot spring powered jacuzzi and sauna facilities are immaculately clean and perfect for relaxing after a day out exploring.

We loved our stay here and were enchanted with Hveragerði and surrounding area. We had Room 9 which was very comfortable with a gorgeous view of the river. The hot tubs were a real highlight. As others have mentioned, the breakfast is excellent with plenty of choice. We also ate one night at the restaurant Varma which was just delicious.

Great 2 night stay here. Highlights were the hot tubs outside and the restaurant. Excellent breakfast and dinner was the best lamb and artic chat that we’ve ever had! Magical place – such a treat to go outside in the cold and get into. 40 C / 100+ F hot tub.
