Make a stop at the Mývatn Nature Baths on your journey of North Iceland and unwind in geothermal water surrounded by a landscape created in a volcanic eruption some 2,000 years ago. This is a perfect detour for weary travellers looking to soothe aching muscles and lift their spirit.
Lake Mývatn and its surroundings is an area of rugged beauty, shaped by volcanic activity and geothermal powers. Amongst the region’s barren lava fields lies the Mývatn Nature Baths, a luxurious spa which utilises nature’s energy to create a calm and relaxing environment.
Here you can unwind in warm waters which contain a unique blend of minerals, silicates and geothermal microorganisms, said to do wonders for your skin. There are also two natural saunas onsite where steam from the depths of the Earth rises through vents in the floor.
Before you enter the baths, you have the option to purchase a drink bracelet which allows you to enjoy a refreshing beverage while you soak in the warm water. After your dip, you can head into the onsite cafe for a delicious meal made from fresh, local ingredients.
The Mývatn Nature Baths have been nicknamed ‘The Blue Lagoon of the North’. However, they are both cheaper and less crowded than their southern counterpart, making it the perfect choice for those looking for a quiet, relaxing time in northern Iceland.
The spa is open late into the evening, allowing summer visitors to unwind under the Midnight Sun while winter visitors can stay warm in the hot pools while searching for the elusive Northern Lights.
Let warm, and mineral-rich water relax your muscles as you marvel at the surrounding volcanic landscapes at the Mývatn Nature Baths. Book now to add a relaxing soak to your North Iceland holiday.
