Highlights from the Place

Laugarvallarlaug geothermal Pool

Laugarvallarlaug geothermal pool is located in the green valley of Laugarvalladalur in North East Iceland close to the river Jökulsá í Dal. It is a pool fed by a geothermal stream from a nearby hot spring. A waterfall falls from a cliff into the natural pool. It is ideal to take a shower in the waterfall or relax in the pool. The temperature is close to 40 degrees Celsius (104 F).  From Egilstaðir there is a good asphalt road to Kárahnjúkar hydro dam and from there it is approximately 7 km to Laugarvallalaug pool. Be aware though that this 7 km is very rough gravel road and a 4×4 WD is needed. Close to the pool is a small camping site and to get there one has to cross a small creek which is easily done by most 4×4 WD SUV. From the camping site it is just a few minutes walk to the Laugarvallarlaug geothermal pool.
