Iceland's only Beer Spa
Iceland´s first and only Björbuðin (Beer Spa) opened in the summer of 2017. The property has 7 bath tubs, made from Kambala wood, a sauna, a relaxation room and 2 outdoor hot tubs.
It is available for people, one at a time, or two together. There is no age limit for the beer bath because the bathwater is undrinkable, but there is a beer draught at every tub for anybody over 20 years of age. 16 years and younger need to be accompanied with adults.
When taking a beer bath, you bathe in a big tub filled with beer, water, hops and yeast. The benefits The warm, soothing water helps to open up the pores, draw out toxins and stimulate the circulatory system. The hops help to exfoliate the skin by sloughing off the dead upper layer. The yeast in beer is also considered to be quite healing, containing both saccharides and B vitamins that are believed to help improve skin elasticity and acne The bubbling carbonated water further helps by infusing the bath with minerals and inviting soakers to slip into deep relaxation – and, that alone, we think makes it well-worth a visit!
