Tour Description

The Mývatn Natural Baths are a group of gorgeous geothermally heated pools located in the stunningly beautiful Lake Mývatn area. They are the Northern version of the more famous Blue Lagoon and boast stunning natural scenery that all visitors are bound to enjoy.

Myvatn Nature Baths

The baths themselves surround a large lagoon, which is naturally heated to a temperature of between 36 and 40 degrees, making them ideal for bathing. The water is heated by subterranean lava flows deep beneath the surface and then filtered through a series of volcanic rocks, ensuring that they are incredibly nutrient-rich and good for skin and breathing problems.

Geothermal Hot Water

Lake Myvatn is surrounded by areas of exquisite natural beauty, including – the otherworldly Mount Námaskarð, which is stunningly beautiful and eerily lifeless; Dimmuborgir (the dark fortress), a lonely lava formation that watchers of Game of Thrones will recognize as the set of Mance Raider’s Wildling Camp in Game of Thrones; the majestic Grjótagjá hot spring which was the place where Jon Snow broke his vows with Ygritte in Game of Thrones; and Lake Myvatn itself which is rich in wildlife and fascinating vegetation. You can combine your trip to the Lake Myvatn Natural Baths with any of these magical places to create an unforgettable tour that will provide memories that last a lifetime.
