Iceland is redefining the definition of a boozy trip abroad, all thanks to its latest innovative attraction: a beer spa.

The Bjórböðin Beer Spa might just be the best thing to come out of Scandinavia since Abba, with guests invited to enjoy any number of relaxing spa treatments, including being able to bathe in a bath full of beer.

Each tub comes complete with a tap that offers the bather the latest tipple from the nearby microbrewery.

A range of options are available, with single hour-long tub sessions priced at around 6 900 krona (about R785 at ISK8.72/R) while anyone looking to partner up can fork out 13 000 krona (about R1 480).

The more adventurous among you may even fancy soaking in one of the venue’s various outside tubs. These offer holidaymakers the chance to take in the breathtaking views of the Þorvalds Valley.

The spa is the brainchild of the Bragi family, who founded Kaldi, the first microbrewery in the country.

With visits available as part of a week-long tour of the region offered by Magnetic North Travel, this could be the ideal retreat for anyone wishing to drown their sorrows in a giant vat of booze!
