You asked and like any decent human beings we comply. Below you will find a map of most natural hot springs in the whole of Iceland. Let the party start.

A couple of things before continuing. First off, the hot springs mentioned here are only those possible to view and/or visit without too much hassle and only those where still possible to soak without burning to ashes or freezing in seconds.

ALWAYS check the temperature carefully before taking the leap

You see, water in many hot springs changes temperature with time. Some fizzle out and turn colder than the Cold War while others get hotter and hotter and jumping into those can in some cases be life threatening due to heat. If arriving at one ALWAYS check the temperature carefully before taking the leap. Also keep firmly in mind that in some cases hot pools are located on private land and permission should be obtained if possible.

Many of you have inquired about soaking nude in these hot springs. No law against that but in many cases this is frowned upon by less open-minded tourists and tour guides. Keep swimsuits close in case.

We have also supplied a location specific hotel booking site for your convenience in case you are traveling on your own. Camping is possible but again you will need a permit in some cases and if the site is popular you might not get much rest. Do not forget there is no nighttime in high summer and a number of folks seek out natural pools late at night at that time. Lastly, take care, these are natural springs and you may want your kids to be able to visit in the future.

Enjoy!
