Experience nature from its core

Upplifðu kjarna íslenskrar náttúru

Krauma is a natural geothermal bath resort at Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring. Krauma is open all year round and can accommodate 140 guests at a time.


Experience nature from its core by bathing in the geothermal baths at Krauma. The hot water originates in Europe’s most powerful hot spring Deildartunguhver, at a temperature of 100°C (212°F). To achieve the perfect bathing temperature we mix the hot water with cold water from Rauðsgil, which originates in the glacier Ok, the smallest glacier in Iceland.

Krauma offers five relaxing natural geothermal baths, a cold tub to get your blood circulation going, two calming saunas and a relaxation room where you can rest by the fireplace while listening to soothing music.


Krauma has a total of six baths, five warm and one cold. The baths only feature blunted soft shapes which create an interesting contrast to the square design of the buildings. Two of the baths are large and spacious, another two are shaped in the form of cochlea and a third is shaped like a large plate where guests can relax in the water while sunbathing. Last but not least is the cold bath (5°C to 8°C) for those who want to jump start their blood circulation.

Relaxation room

To maximize the experience guests can go to the relaxation room located in the bathing area. In the room guests can lie or sit down and relax to soothing music and a crackling fireplace.


Krauma has two steam baths in separate buildings along with outdoor showers. The steam is created by spraying water from the hot springs under timber benches located in the steam baths. Guests can feel high quality scented oils in the saunas to add to their experience.
