Hot Springs of Iceland

Icelandic hot springs are found in many areas around the country; from the seaside to the most remote areas of the glaciers. Although some of these Icelandic hot springs are utilized for house heating, many simply produce boiling water that flows freely into nature without any interference by man. Through the centuries, the hot springs in Icelandhave been used for boiling food and washing clothes and wool on the farms in Iceland. Because of the high temperature of the water (up to 100°C/212°F), great caution is needed when visiting a hot spring area. Not only hot water, but also boiling mud in or underneath the surface can be dangerous to the uninformed traveler. Just know that when touring the hot springs of Iceland, there is more than meets the eye.
