Mývatn Nature Baths, Lake Myvatn

Soak inside or out at Mývatn Nature Baths. A warm natural lagoon maintains a temperature of 35-40 C (95-104 F). Inside you can take an even hotter steam bath, which uses geothermal steam that rises through holes in the floor. If you get too hot, you'll find cold showers outside. Relax with a back, foot, or full-body massage, in the massage room or out by the lagoon. Often chosen as an alternative to the Blue Lagoon, these hot springs attract fewer tourists and are less expensive. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Lake Myvatn holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mývatn Nature Baths and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The way from the changing room to the pool at 8 degrees outside temperature is not far, but kaaalt..:)) Then immerse yourself in the warm to very warm water up to the neck, simply wonderful.

  • Such an awesome place to spend the day, or a few hours. The pool is an awesome temperature and there is also a hot tub and sauna. I will definitely be going back to visit on my next trip.
  • Cool place with no rush, all facilities are there. You can book on the spot. It feels warm inside the water and no need to spend money on blue Lagoon. Come here and enjoy. An hour is enough and open till midnight
