There’s a reason why Icelanders are considered to be one of the healthiest nations in the world. Iceland, famous for freshly grown produce, locally caught fish, and a relaxed Scandinavian lifestyle, also offer world’s cleanest water which is glacier-fed groundwater heated by geothermal activity and saturated with plenty of minerals. There’s something sublime in bathing outdoors beneath the dancing aurora or the lavender skies of the Midnight Sun.
Iceland is one of the most popular destinations for those who seek to get away from daily troubles by visiting world-famous natural hot springs and geothermal spas. Wellness travel is at its peak and Iceland is a perfect location to try a wellness break.
On top of hot spring pools and hot tubs, saunas, restaurants or even accommodation is at your fingertips. These establishments also provide other spa procedures, such as facials, massages, scrubs and many more.

Sustainability: The Grassy Creek Foundation, or GCF, is a private family foundation established in 2011 by the founder of Eleven. It was built on the same principles as those underlying all that we do at Eleven: a deep respect for nature and a dedication to environmental conservation and responsible stewardship of natural resources.These shared principles are visible in the Foundation’s programming and grant-making initiatives. Over the years, GCF has supported a diverse roster of organizations, from large nonprofits such as the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the North Atlantic Salmon Fund, to more regional and local conservation groups such as the Gasparilla Island Conservation and Improvement Association in Boca Grande, and the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust in the Florida Keys. It is also developing on-the-ground initiatives in locations where Eleven operates, supporting local communities through direct charitable activities such as clean-up efforts and environmental outreach and education.
