... The idea is to soak in the warm, pale blue water and let the warmth and volcanic residue relax your body and treat your skin. It did both of these very well ! :)

That is actually a feature of Iceland generally. We then go back to Hotel Skogafoss to check out the Skogafoss Waterfall, the back drop to our accommodation. Skogafoss is ...
