Djúpavogskörin Geothermal Pool

Sometimes the little finds are the best. Hidden just off route 1 is one such place. Not visible from the road this beautiful geothermal pool is perfect for escaping the road before reaching Djúpivogur.

The only clue to its presence is the green encrusted spring and bog cotton trails that lead from a small parking place to the pool, tucked behind a large rock.

From here you can watch the sunlight bounce off the Atlantic Ocean. Even in winter it is magical, coated in snow, the water the only warmth from the extremes.

No payments needed, no showers and nothing more than a tin tub constantly overflowing with hot spring water, a clothes stand and amazing views.

Perfection.
