Immerse yourself in geothermally heated waters surrounded by nothing but untouched Icelandic nature at Vök Baths. This is the perfect option for those visiting East Iceland who would like to unwind in naturally warm and mineral-rich waters.

Iceland is renowned for its geothermal activity and the hot water used to heat the majority of homes across the country comes straight out of the ground. Compared to the rest of the country, there are very few hot springs in the East of Iceland, so Vök Baths is a must for anyone visiting the region.

Vök Baths are located on Lake Urriðavatn just 5-kilometres northwest of Egilsstaðir, the largest town in the East of Iceland. The baths only just opened in the summer of 2019 and the facilities were designed by the same architect that orchestrated the famous Blue Lagoon spa in the southwest of Iceland.

A long time ago, locals noticed that when Lake Urriðavatn froze in the winter, there were certain spots where the ice would melt. The Icelandic name for these holes is Vök, and they came to reveal hot springs streaming up to the surface from deep under the lake.

Vök Baths make the most of this naturally heated water to create a luxurious spa experience with amazing views of the rest of the lake and the surrounding countryside. The luxurious baths also boast a cafe and restaurant selling delicious refreshments which are primarily made from locally-sourced organic produce. 

The water at Vök is unique in that the hot spring water is so clean, it’s possible to drink it making it the only drinkable natural hot water in Iceland. A sulphurous smell usually accompanies geothermally heated water, however, this is significantly reduced at Vök baths.

Embrace the geothermal energy of Iceland and relax in luxury at Vök baths. Check availability by choosing a date.
