Unwind in warm, geothermal waters, surrounded by nothing but the untouched Icelandic nature at the Mývatn Nature Baths. This is the perfect opportunity for travellers in North Iceland who are looking to add both relaxation and leisure to their holiday plans.

The Mývatn Nature Baths offer their guests a natural experience where they can unwind amongst pillars of white steam with views of the otherworldly landscapes of the Mývatn region in every direction. The spa is open all year long and well into the night, creating the perfect opportunity to enjoy the Midnight Sun in the summertime or the Northern Lights in the winter.

The pools at Mývatn Nature Baths contain a unique blend of minerals, silicates and geothermal microorganisms which are great for soothing aching muscles. These minerals are also said to do wonders for both your skin and spirit, creating a sense of wellbeing that will undoubtedly stay with you throughout your day.

Aside from the two pools, you will also find on site a pair of natural steam baths and a restaurant; perfect to quell any hunger one might feel after a dip in the pools. You can even order a drink before getting in the pool and have an attendant bring it to you once you're comfortable in the water.

The Mývatn Nature Baths are a great addition to your day of sightseeing in the North as they are located only a short drive from the most loved attractions of the area. This is the perfect break for those visiting sites such as Dimmuborgir lava field, Námaskarð geothermal area, Grjótagjá cave, and, of course, Lake Mývatn itself.

We had a fabulous trip around Iceland. Iceland is a truly amazing country and our guide Thor Tulinius brought the country to life in a truly exceptional manner. Overall the gods blessed us with very good weather but seeing the country in all its weather moods makes for an authentic experience. We could not recommend this trip highly enough.

These nature baths are similar to the Blue Lagoon but a bit less commercial. It was fun and relaxing, we went with our tour group on a chilly, rainy day and moved from hot spot to hot spot within the baths.

Great! Warm spring, big Lagoon, very relaxing and nice. If the bathing area with seperate room and hook outside the door would be better.
