Bathe in Myvatn Nature Baths

Rate this Adventure Iceland Lake Myvatn Nature Baths

Added by Shalee Blackmer

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.

Swim in Iceland's Blue Lagoon

Iceland / Blue Lagoon Parking

The Blue Lagoon in Iceland is one of the country's most famous attractions. The pristine blue waters are a result of volcanic activity. The water is naturally heated and soothes the skin.
