Hellulaug geothermal pool is located on the coast near Flókalundur in Vatnsfjörður Fjord in the southern Westfjords by road No. 60.

Hellulaug cannot be seen from the road, but there is a parking lot above the pool and a good path down to the ocean. The pool is 60 cm deep and the temperature of the water is ca 38 °C. The geothermal water comes from a borehole above the pool.

Bathing nude in the hot pools is not customary amongst Icelanders.
