spa  in northern iceland

Whilst not a spa in the traditional sense, the joy of experiencing the warm thermal waters of Lake Myvatn Thermal Baths are somewhat out of this world.

The lagoon itself is a man-made construction, its bottom is covered by sand and gravel and surrounded by the extraordinary landscape of northern Iceland.  The characteristics of the water are unique in many ways, containing a large amount of minerals, is alkaline and well suited for bathing.

The water supplies for the lagoon run straight from the bore hole in Bjarnarflag. The water has a temperature of about 130°C when it arrives to the huge basin beside the lagoon, itself forming an impressive, man-made hot spring.  Altogether, the lagoon and the basin contain around 3.5 million litres of water with a temperature of 36 – 40°C.

Beside the thermal baths, there are changing rooms, thermal steam baths and a small restaurant.

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 Myvatn Thermal Baths are just 4km from Hotel Reykjahlid
