Throughout the years it has been a tradition to bathe in the warm water at  Hverahólmi and in the old day, people used to go to the pools to wash their clothes in the warm water. the water is filled with natural resources as the water is constantly flowing from the hot springs this making it very warm, clean and rich in sulphur.
