Love beer so much that you wanna have it all around you? Drinking beer with your bros has become too mainstream, now you can go a step ahead and take a beer bath with them! Iceland is the perfect place for you to be in if you are as crazy a beer lover as we are because it has recently opened a spa that offers you a beer bath! The spa, named Bjórböðin, is located on the northern tip of Iceland in the village of Árskógssandur. The bath is supposed to have health benefits (like we really needed a reason to go there).
Your bathtub will be filled with beer, brewer's yeast, hops, and water. There is a beer draught at every tub because a good bath deserves a good drink, and also because the bath water is undrinkable. They have 7 indoor tubs where you could bath alone or with one other person. Drinking beer is available only to people 20 years or older, however, there is no age limit for the bathing experience. Anyone under 16 years of age has to be accompanied by an adult.
Beer has properties that help revitalize your hair and skin. Both young beer and live beer yeast produce extremely powerful results on the body and skin when left unshowered for a few hours. Then there are the health benefits of the hops and yeasts churning in the tub, which stimulate digestion and metabolism when absorbed through the skin. After soaking in the bath for 25 minutes you spend another 25 minutes in the relaxation room letting the liquid do its work.
The food served here is also interesting as besides other tasty meals they also serve beer-related foods. There are 2 bathtubs in the outer area for larger parties of 8-10 people and you can take in the view outside of Hrísey island, mountains and Þorvalds valley.
So just go ahead and plan your next vacation in Iceland and prove how crazy a beer fan you are.
