Wellness Facilities

Which wellness facilities are available depend a little on the Well Iceland tour that you think suits you best. Our tours are carefully planned to ensure that you have access to the widest range of facilities available. At most of our hotels, you will find things like swimming pools and studios for workshops. Though these facilities will be used in many of the classes, you have free access to most of them in your free time and we encourage you to use them as much as possible during your stay.

There is much evidence to suggest that treatments such as massages can improve both your physical and mental conditions. The well-trained medical massage therapists and experienced staff can ensure that your treatments are comfortable and enjoyable.
