Iceland is world-renowned for it’s natural geothermal pools, and while drilling for hot water at Húsavíkurhöfði in the 20th century revealed water that turned out to be hot seawater, which was too rich in minerals to be suitable for heating houses.
Instead of letting this hot water go to waste, an old cheese barrel was installed at Húsavíkurhöfði, where residents could enjoy the health benefits of bathing in hot seawater.
Those suffering from skin conditions such as psoriasis have found relief by bathing in the water, which is at an optimal temperature of 38°-39°C.
While the warm sea works its magic, you can enjoy the breath-taking view of the mountainrange to the west, Skjalfandi Bay beneath the cliffs and the Arctic Circle itself on the horizon.
