Picture-perfect location when you dream of elopement photoshoot surrounded by emerald hot springs. It’s possible to enter the facilities with no additional cost. This is no SPA, so no swimming is allowed. However, you can always plan your stay at SPA after the photoshoot and rest after the good job you have just done as a model! Photographer can accompany you, if you’d like. Additional bonus note: possibility to capture famous Icelandic moss.
