You can fly to Iceland’s hot springs for less than a day at a UK spa – here's how | The Sun

YOU can visit Iceland's hot springs for less than a day out at a UK spa – here's how.

Brits will be looking for ways to save money on their next break, with many on a much stricter budget due to the cost of living crisis.

While a trip to Iceland may appear to be pricey, Brits can actually visit one of the country's hot springs for less than the cost of a day at a UK spa.

Time Out named the Hvammsvík Hot Springs in Iceland as one of the best things to do in the world in 2023 – and a trip to the springs won't break the bank either.

Both easyJet and Icelandair operate direct routes from London to Reykjavik with prices starting from £43 for a one-way ticket or £86 for a return journey.

From Reykjavik, holidaymakers will need to drive for 45 minutes through the Icelandic fjords to reach the Hvammsvík Hot Springs.

Brits who don't feel comfortable driving in Iceland can also arrange a transfer to the springs too.

From Monday to Friday, entry tickets cost 6,900 Icelandic Króna (£41), with the price rising to 7,900 Icelandic Króna (£47) on Saturdays and Sundays.

Once the cost of the entry ticket has been combined with the price of return flights (£127), the trip still remains cheaper than the cost of an average spa day in London, which stands at £130.

Visitors to the Hvammsvík Hot Springs will be able to soak up the mountain views in eight hot springs with temperatures ranging from 37C to 40C.

As well as the springs, there's also a steam room, and the option to jump into the ocean on a paddle board.

Visitors can also take part in additional activities like yoga, ocean swimming, and hiking trails.

The spring is open between 10am to 9pm all year round, and guests need to be over the age of 10 to visit.

In recent months, holidaymakers have been raving about the hot springs on TripAdvisor too.

One person wrote: "A beautiful place, with a stunning view and very friendly staff! I loved the possibility to go into the sea, it's definitely worth the visit."

While another person added: "Hands down the best Hot Spring in Iceland."

And this isn't the only location in Europe that's cheaper to visit than heading to a similar attraction in the UK.

Earlier this year, Callum Ryan, 22, challenged himself to fly to Budapest in Hungary and visit a thermal bath for less than a UK spa day.

He shared the cheeky trip on his TikTok account after he spotted a spa day in the UK for £40.

He booked a flight from London Stansted to Budapest with Wizzair at a cost of £17 and paid 9,400 Hungarian forints (£22.12) to visit the thermal baths.

While his trip was cheaper than the price of a spa day, several users accused him of not disclosing other costs like accommodation and meals out.
