Myvatn Nature Baths 

Myvatn Nature Baths is a traditional and tastefully designed complex offering a completely natural experience you can enjoy with your day admission ticket.

The two steam baths are built on top of a geothermal area, and the sulfur steam rises through holes in the floor. The water of the Myvatn Nature Baths is drawn from a borehole that goes 2,500 meters into the ground.

The water has a high concentration of minerals and is well suited for bathing.
Before or after bathing, you can enjoy a light meal and drinks at Café Kvika in a beautiful setting with views of the stunning natural surroundings.

Please bring your swimsuit and towel. However, it’s possible to rent it at the facilities.
