Cold & Hot Water


City Life Activities

Please keep in mind that the water takes a few seconds to cool down and be careful when using the hot water, it can almost reach up to 70 degrees Celsius (158 Fahrenheit)!

Sometimes the water can smell like sulphur. That's because it's sourced from a natural volcanic site, but there's nothing to worry about - it's clean and safe.

If you would like to drink tap water, we recommend waiting for a few seconds and then testing if the water is cold. The cold tap water in Iceland is considered to be among the best in the world and usually measures 6 degrees Celsius (43 Fahrenheit).
