Husafell Gay Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Husafell for Gay travellers


The gay-friendly elements of Husafell

Husafell is an immensely beautiful farm and church site with incredible hiking paths, ponds and lava formations. Since Iceland is one of the most progressive country when it comes to homosexuality, Husafell as an aftermath, is a considerately open minded destination.

Same sex weddings are legal in Iceland since 2010 and the capital (2hours away) has a vividly visible gay scene with an organised gay scene and high LGBT acceptance. Although Husafell is not a top destination when it comes to gay life, the beauties this town has are far beyond enough for those looking for adventures and a chance to freely express themselves. 

Escape the busy daily routine and get in touch with nature as in Husafell you will discover many amazing places to upgrade your romantic outbreak with your partner. Dense woodlands, magnificent waterfalls, enormous glaciers, rugged lava bulks, wildflowers and unique thermal baths and hot springs are only some of the amazing places you can explore.

Main activities to create an entertaining excursion in Husafell consist of ice cave tours, visits to the waterfalls and daily stops to the Deildartunguhver for a refreshing experience in hot springs or to Krauma Geothermal Baths. Camping and hiking is also a must in a place like this.

Gay Tips

Gay Pride usually is organised in August in the capital of Iceland. Since Iceland is one of the most progressive country when it comes to gay rights, the participation rate in this event is enormous.

An unspoken rule in Iceland is that wearing nothing when getting in hot springs or thermal baths is an essential attribute. The main reason behind this is the hygiene and the trivial one is that nudism is actually legal in Iceland.

Some hot springs tend to overheat in unexpected times really fast, so the conditions can get really dangerous. Get well informed before visiting the sites.

Another peculiar ''tradition'' in Iceland, is that in midsummer the locals celebrate their North faith by rolling naked in morning due to secure their luck for the year to come.
