The Hellulaug Hot Spring is located close to the beach in Vatnsfjörður, in the Westfjords of Iceland. It can be accessed by taking the Ring Road northbound from Reykjavik, and then turning left onto Road 60, also known as Vestfjarðavegur. This road will take you straight to the hot spring. The road is partially graveled, so it is important to drive with caution while enjoying the beautiful landscapes along the way.
The Hellulaug Hot Spring offers a secluded and peaceful spot to enjoy, due to its free entry and less well-known location. Located by the seaside with a view of the ocean and Vatnsfjörður fjord, visitors can leave money in a canister near the parking lot to contribute to the maintenance of the pool and surrounding area. The pool is regularly cleaned and maintained to meet quality standards. There are no private changing facilities, so it is recommended to change clothes in your car or wear them underneath. The weather in the area can be cold, so bring extra clothes and essentials such as towels, food, and hot drinks.
