Health and wellness tourism is gaining traction the world over and Iceland is no exception. Iceland is well known for its abundant geothermal energy that is used in a variety of ways as is evidenced by the plethora of geothermal swimming pool complexes found in every little town and village right around the country.

North Aurora Exclusive Baths
The owner of North Aurora Guesthouse, Bryndís Pétursdóttir, has made full use of the happy coincidence that her guesthouse is located 500m from one such swimming pool in North Iceland’s beautiful Reykjadalur valley. Bryndís has obtained exclusive rights to the use of the facilities and every evening from 10pm to 1am, North Aurora Exclusive Baths is open to the public. Here you can luxuriate in the healing waters of the spacious hot tubs and the heated swimming pool, or treat yourself to the soothing effects of water therapy with the Icelandic designed ‘Flothetta’ floating device. Top off the evening with a rejuvenating massage or facial for the complete North Aurora Exclusive Baths spa experience. It’s the ultimate way to end your day, soaking your cares away while the stars, the moon, or maybe even the magnificent Northern Lights dance overhead.

A guesthouse that stands out from the rest
With an eye for detail and an emphasis on health and wellbeing, Bryndís opened the North Aurora Guesthouse in 2014 and provides her guests with many luxurious touches found only in more exclusive hotels; hand soaps from Sóley Organics and fluffy organic cotton bathrobes for each guest are but a few examples. When it comes to breakfast, healthy food choices are the order of the day; freshly made waffles, homemade organic breads and jams, organic fruits and vegetables and even local free-range eggs are all standard breakfast options. These are just some of the special touches that make North Aurora Guesthouse stand out from the rest.

Connect to Nature in Reykjadalur
Consider a guided nature walk to the nearby elf stone with Bryndís, who is very knowledgeable about elven healing energies. Visitors can also take part in a therapeutic porcelain workshop on Wednesdays from 5pm to 8pm giving participants an opportunity to create a small porcelain object that will serve as a wonderful memento of their stay in North Iceland’s Reykjadalur valley.
