DIP & DINE
ESSENTIAL EXPERIENCE OF LOCAL FOOD AND CALMING GEOTHERMAL BATH
RELAXING OUTDOOR GEOTHERMAL POOL AND LOCAL MEAL
To immerse in warm water of an outdoor geothermal pool is simultaneously energizing and serene experience and there is nothing the local population appreciates more. Except perhaps to enjoy a good local meal. This tour offers both!
The calming geothermal baths at Krauma are situated at Europe´s most powerful hot spring, Deildartunguhver, only 97 km (60 miles) from Reykjavik. Located in the same geothermal active Reykholtsdalur valley, the horsefarm Sturlu Reykir has a private hot spring that generously offers the farmers free heating for their farm and an alternative fuel-conserving method for cooking. Here we taste the traditional baked hot spring rye bread (“hverabraud”); dense and sweet rye bread, often served with butter, smoked lamb or pickled herring.
At Krauma you´ll experience nature from its core. About 180 liters (50 US gallons) of close to boiling hot water emerge naturally from the ground every second. To achieve the perfect bathing temperature, the hot water is mixed with pure ice-cold water from the neighboring Ok, the smallest glacier in Iceland. Krauma offers five warm soothing natural geothermal baths all at slightly different temperature, a cold tub to get your blood circulation going, two calming steam baths and a relaxation room. Finally, you will enjoy a delightful meal from fresh local farm produced ingredients to complete the experience.
