Opened on the 30th of June 2004, Myvatn Nature baths offers something for everyone. Despite its northerly location, the region enjoys a temperate climate. The long summer days when darkness never comes can be surprisingly warm.

As summer merges into autumn, the landscape becomes a panoramic patchwork dotted with shades of gold and brown, while winter brings its own tapestry of snow, sparkling frosts, and frequent opportunities to enjoy the unforgettable splendor of the Northern Lights.

A designated nature reserve, Myvatn is an area of fragile beauty where tourist services have been developed in such a way as to cause as little disruption as possible to what is a unique and highly delicate ecosystem.

The experience

Drawing on a centuries-old tradition, the tastefully designed complex offers bathers a completely natural experience. It begins with a relaxing dip amidst clouds of steam rising up from a fissure deep in the Earth’s surface. Finally you go for a luxurious swim in a pool of geothermal water. The water is drawn from depths of up to 2.500 metres.
