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.
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.
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.
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.
