“What makes them special is that the bathtub is accessible even to those who might have a hard time climbing into a bathtub,” hotelier Friðrik Pálsson says. “You walk into the tub, close the door behind you and then settle in as you fill the tub with water. Then, you can stay seated until the water drains out and then walk out of the tub again.”

The Highland Center Hrauneyjar is close to many of the most beautiful and popular attractions in The Highland – including Landmannalaugar, Þjórsárdalur, Mount Hekla, Sprengisandur, Veiðivötn and Fjallabak. The vastness and lack of human impact on the surrounding area makes it one of the last places in Europe where freedom, natural beauty and solitude work in harmony.
Of course, you can also simply fill it up and get in later but the added accessibility is a very exciting aspect. The shower is also accessible via this handy little class door on the side of the tub. The combo has a high quality modern design in a perfect rectangular shape and provides special comfort, not only through its easy access but also with its spacious interior and its waterproof seating pad.
The pad can be used as a comfortable seat before, during or following a shower or a soak but it can also be a handy storage area for shower essentials. It can also transform into a comfortable backrest while bathing.
“We’ve had these tubs for about a year now, trying them out in six rooms, and so far the response has been very positive,” Friðrik says. “It’s great fun.” Feel like soaking it all in?
