About Hrunalaug

Small natural hot spring with pure water at body temperature

Hrunalaug is a natural hot spring located in the Hrunamannahreppur region closed to the village Flúðir. The property is privately owned and has been in the same family since it was originally built back in the 1890s on the farm Ás.

Hrunalaug is a popular spot for tourists and locals alike, as well as being known for its relaxing and rejuvenating properties. The water in the hot spring is naturally heated by geothermal activity and is rich in minerals that are said to have therapeutic benefits for the skin and muscles.

Visitors can enjoy a soak in the warm waters of the hot spring, surrounded by the stunning natural beauty of the Icelandic landscape. Despite its popularity, Hrunalaug remains a peaceful and serene location, offering a unique and unforgettable experience for those who visit.

The area

Three different pools

Laundry  The oldest part of the pool in its current form was built around 1890 by Stefán Jónsson (b.1857, d.1917), farmer at Ás and his family. This part of the pool was used for washing laundry and bathing the family members.

Sheep  The second pool was built in year 1935 by Steindór Eiríksson (b.1884, d.1967), also a farmer at Ás and grandfather of current owners. That structure was originally conceived for the bathing of sheep. Every two years, all sheep had to be washed to prevent scab, which is a serious disease caused by mite that infests sheep. Bathing of sheep was discontinued in the 1980s.

Tourists  The third pool was constructed by the current owners in 2017 to meet the needs of the growing number of tourists eager to experience the uniqueness of this amazing place. In the summer of 2023, this section of the pool underwent a complete renovation, featuring the addition of an outer ring made of natural columnar basalt. The result is a new, larger, deeper, and more beautiful pool that everyone should enjoy.
