Iceland could be about to redefine the definition of boozy trips abroad after unveiling its latest attraction: a beer spa.

The Bjórböðin Beerspa & Restaurant might just be the best thing to come out of Scandinavia since ABBA, with patrons invited to enjoy any number of relaxing spa treatments, some of which involve soaking away those daily stresses in hot tubs filled with beer.

It’s the perfect opportunity to relax, lie back and get completely off your trolley though you needn’t worry – they aren’t expecting you to glug down on the beer-based juices you’re soaking your body in.

Instead, each tub comes complete with a beer tap that offers the user the latest tipple from the nearby microbrewery.

A range of options are available, with single tub hour-long sessions priced at around 6,900 kroner (£50) while anyone looking to partner up can fork out 13,000 kroner (£93) for a double.

The more adventurous among you may even fancy soaking it up in one of the venue’s various outside tubs, which offer holidaymakers the chance to take in the breathtaking views of the Þorvalds Valley while getting totally pissed of course.

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 quite literally drown their sorrows in a giant vat of booze.

Don’t go trying to recreate this sort of magic at home though – filling your bath with 40 cans of Stella Artois isn’t quite as magical.
