The Nature Baths are the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing in the Lake Mývatn area.
- Relax in the lagoon
- Enjoy the breathtaking natural surroundings
- Unwind in the steam baths
Mývatn Nature Baths is a traditional and tastefully designed complex offering a completely natural experience that you can enjoy with your day admission ticket.
The 2 steam baths are built on top of a geothermal area and the sulfur steam rises up through holes in the floor. The water of the Mývatn Nature Baths is drawn from a borehole that goes 2,500 meters into the ground.
The water has a high concentration of minerals, is basic in nature and 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.
