The Beer Spa is now open
Beer and Geothermal Hot Water

The official opening of the Beer Spa at Árskógssandur was on 1st of June. Preparations have been going on for a while and the construction of the spa went according to plan this last winter. It‘s safe to say that people have been anxious to finally see the spa in action, as a big crowd gathered at the spa for the opening.

The spa is open all days, open until 20:00 pm or 22:00 pm depending on the weekday. Up to 14 guests can enjoy the spa at the same time, each guest gets 50 minutes in the spa. 25 minutes are in the actual beer bath and then the guests are taken to a relaxing room where they stay for 25 minutes.

Of course, all guests who have reached the appropriate age have access to their own private Kaldi beer draught next to the baths. There is also a bar in the house where all kinds of Kaldi beer are served along with other drinks. Next to the bar is a restaurant that can host up to 80 guests at the same time.

For more info, see the Beer spa‘s webpage.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
