Hellulaug geothermal pool is located in Vatnsfjörður Fjord, on the the southern shore of the Westfjords. The sagas say that the first settler in Iceland stayed for a winter here, in Vatnsdalur. This little pool is about 3-4 metres diameter, 60 cm deep and the temperature of the water is around 38 °C. It doesn’t have a place to change or to take a shower but is a very delightful hot pool with beautiful views. You cannot see it from the road, but above the pool is a parking lot and from there it starts a path down to the ocean. Few hundred meters away is also the camping site Flokalundur. The ferry arrives from Stykkishólmur not far away from here, in Brjánslækur. GPS coordinates : 65.57728 -23.15965
