Although the boys had a good play in the swimming pool and hot pot here it was the only place we submerged ourselves Iceland where we didn’t experience any magic at all – perhaps it was all used up in medieval times, when the natural spring here was said to have healing powers.

That hot pot is now closed, a protected archeological site said to have been blessed by bishop Gudmundor the Good (1160-1237). So modern day bathers have two choices – a natural swimming pool and a small natural spring tucked into it’s side.
