The geothermal pool Hellislaug
Within a walking distance from the hotel is Hellislaug, a natural geothermal pool on the shoreline of Breiðafjörður Bay. The natural surrounding with its unspoiled wildlife is breathtakingly unique. The hot spring is loaded from rocks and is very pleasant to relax in while enjoying the wonderful view of Breiðafjörður Bay.
Látrabjarg is the most western point of Iceland and Europe’s largest bird cliff. It is 14 km long and up to 440 m high. The cliffs are home to million of seabirds, including puffins, guillemots and razorbills. It is an excellent point to witness the birds in their natural environment. The number of birds vary between seasons, with the highest number during late May and Juni.
It takes approximately 2 hours to drive to Látrabjarg from Hotel Flokalundur.
