The amazing new GeoSea Baths give people the exotic experience of bathing in geothermal seawater while enjoying the views of coastal mountains and the sea on the edge of the Arctic Circle.
For centuries, the geothermal heat north of Husavik has been known to residents, who have utilized it for bathing and washing. Drilling for hot water at Husavikurhofdi in the mid-20th century revealed water that turned out to be hot seawater, too rich in minerals to be suitable for heating houses. Instead of letting this hot water go to waste, Husavik residents decided to create a hot spring bathing experience using the water.
How did it start
It started as a simple barrel for bathing and now has turned into a newly designed wellness facility. The water in the GeoSea sea baths comes from two drill holes close to the Husavik harbor. The GeoSea sea baths enable you to enjoy nature in a unique manner.
Where does the warm water come from
Thanks to the underground heat, the seawater in the baths is warm and comfortable and the mineral-rich water will caress your skin. The waters are an optional temperature of 38-39°C (100-102°F). While the warm sea works its miracles, you can enjoy the view of the mountain range to the west, Skjalfandi Bay beneath the cliffs and the Arctic Circle itself on the horizon. People suffering from skin conditions such as psoriasis have found relief by bathing in the waters. The GeoSea baths also have a restaurant on site serving soups and light courses.
