Frost & Fire Boutique Hotel

Last updated: 13 December, 2022

Steaming fumaroles, hot springs and a rushing thermal river surround you at Frost and Fire, another impressive luxury hotel that makes an ideal stop as you drive eastwards from Reykjavik on the Ring Road.

It’s located near the village of Hveragerdi, on the banks of the Varma River, and combines stylish rooms with grand views of the Icelandic countryside (the best are the riverside suites, which have small balconies where you can sit and admire the scenery).

Geothermally-heated water is supplied to the hot tubs and the outdoor pool, and also feeds the river – where you can have the bizarre experience of a wild swim in bath-warm water.

Meals are served in the attractive conservatory restaurant, and breakfast even ties in with the geothermal theme: you can boil your own eggs in the naturally hot water, or try traditional hverabraud, hot-spring bread.

Surrounding area

The hotel is situated on its own drive on the northern edge of the village. Hveragerdi is a small, quiet rural place to relax in peace and quiet. It’s a popular hiking area that’s also handy for journeys north towards Thingvellir or further east along the Ring Road.

It’s worth taking a detour to see the smoking vents at Hveradalir Geothermal Area, combined with a visit to see the geothermal energy exhibition at Hellisheidi Power Station, about 17km west of the hotel.
