Entrance Ticket to Vok Baths | Relaxing Family-Friendly Hot Spring Experience
Immerse yourself in the baths and hot springs of East Iceland and experience the age-old Icelandic bathing tradition. Those eager to relax and de-stress in one of Iceland’s geothermal pools should book this relaxing excursion now.
To visit Vok baths, you'll need to make your way to Lake Urridavatn, a beautiful body of water close to the town of Egilsstadir, East Iceland. When you arrive, show your ticket and make your way to the comfortable changing area. Once you've put on your bathing suit, you'll pass through the cold tunnel to go outside to the hot springs and bathing facilities.
There are two pools on the lake (one with an in-water bar), plus onshore hot pools and a cold tunnel. There’s also an on-site sauna that visitors can use. The baths have a beautiful design, and many aspects are made from environmentally friendly materials.
Start your bathing experience with a rejuvenating soak in one of the geothermal infinity pools, enjoying the feeling of the fresh, silica-free water on your skin. Close your eyes and create a special connection with the nature that surrounds the baths. It’s incredibly soothing.
Next, step into an onshore hot pool and let your entire body relax in the warm water. Stay as long as you like in the spacious baths and let any stress disappear as you take in the stunning scenery. Order a drink at the pool bar and sip it as you enjoy a breathtaking sunset.
Feeling daring? Take a quick polar plunge in the frigid lake. A dip in these chilly waters should get your blood flowing and make the warm geothermal waters feel even better. If it’s too cold, don’t worry — there are ladders to help you get in and out of the water quickly, so you can easily change your mind!
When you’ve finished bathing, head to the bistro to refuel with a delicious selection of foods and desserts, much of it made with organic products sourced from local producers. Don’t forget to stop at the tea bar for a cup of tisane, brewed from fresh spring water and delicious local herbs.
The Vok baths officially opened to the public in the summer of 2019. However, the lake itself has a rich history. For centuries, people living around Lake Urridavatn could see that some lake sections didn't freeze, even during the long, icy winter. Those patches of the lake were named "Vok."
Unlike other parts of the country, East Iceland is not usually associated with geothermal heat, which makes this spa a particularly unusual attraction. The hot spring water is exceptionally pure and clean. In fact, it’s the only geothermal water in Iceland that’s safe to drink.
This ticket to the Vok baths includes bath admission and a cup of tisane. All you need to do is organize transportation to and from the site.
Don’t miss the opportunity to pamper yourself at this scenic location and bathe for as long as you like in the warm geothermal waters of Vok baths. Check availability now by choosing a date.
