Do you want to enjoy a relaxing day at a spa? The Mývatn thermal baths are a must in Iceland. You'll soak in warm waters as you admire the volcanic landscape.
Mývatn Thermal Baths
Located less than an hour's drive from Akureyri, Lake Mývatn is a perfect example of Iceland's geothermal landscapes. In order to take advantage of its warm waters, Icelanders created reservoirs that are now used by tourists and locals for relaxing thermal baths.
The water in the spa's swimming pools is around 36-40 degrees, a pleasant contrast to the country's cold climate. What's more, they're 100% natural as due to the volcanic minerals they don't need to be cleaned with chlorine or any other chemicals. They're even said to have therapeutic properties.
And that's not all! You'll also find saunas if you want to feel the heat even more! For the three hours your ticket offers you, you'll be able to enjoy the spa's facilities at your leisure and feel the area's volcanic magic.
