Natural hot springs in northern Iceland that are perfect for watching a sunset.

Myvatn Natural Hot Springs are an alternative hot spring to the well-known Blue Lagoon in Iceland. The $18 student tickets are much more affordable than the prices of $75 for other nature baths.

Because Myvatn is located on the other side of the country than the main airport, it is less crowded, yet offers the same great experience. The prime location sits in the middle of Viti Crater and Hverfjall Crater along the Ring Road.

The best time to visit Myvatn is in the evening after a long day of adventuring. Nothing will compare to watching the sunset slowly drift along the horizon. This is what Iceland is all about.

Best natural bath in Iceland

Myvatn beats the Blue Lagoon, hands-down. It's massive, but not overcrowded. The temperatures are consistent and very warm. There is also a hot-tub like area that is perfect for sitting fulling down in and enjoying a beer or two. Additionally, it was very easy and convenient having the staff serving you beer wherever you were within the spa. Loved this place!

Beats The Blue lagoon.

This was a much better experience than the Blue Lagoon. Half the price and less than half the crowd and better views.
