What a brilliant little spot! We arrived in Höfn and were told there were only two things to do, the hot tubs and the Viking village. We went to the hot tubs and were not disappointed. They are quaint little tubs of toasty warm water...More

Staying at the Glacier World 500m away gave us free entry which was nice. Excellent facilities, toilet, changing rooms and showers. Tubs were different temperatures and quite busy but we had space. Great views of the glacier.

We visited Hoffell Hot Tubs late in the day to relax our tired bodies after the Iceland trip to that point. The hot tubs are not high tech, but they are really clean, and lovely temps - hubby tried them all out and they all...More

These hot pots are a nice place to stop on your way to Hofn. They're more like plastic hot tubs, and they're much cleaner than some of the other hot pots we visited (Seljavallalaug, I'm looking at you). And it was the only hot pot...More

Cold or just warm water, staff lies that it's over 40°C and you can't go and try it yourself before you pay - definitely not worth it.

1000k for small Hot tubes. In Hofn the pool has better Hot tubes, showers and facilites and is cheaper (900k).
