Soak inside or out at Myvatn Nature Baths (Jardbodin vid Myvatn). A warm natural lagoon maintains a temperature of 35-40 C (95-104 F). Inside you can take an even hotter steam bath, which uses geothermal steam that rises through holes in the floor. If you get too hot, you'll find cold showers outside. Relax with a back, foot, or full-body massage, in the massage room or out by the lagoon. Often chosen as an alternative to the Blue Lagoon, these hot springs attract fewer tourists and are less expensive.

  • Great baths relaxing and at a perfect temperature! I was 7 months pregnant and it was amazing to float at this temperature. Outside it was super cold and has not been easy out of the water! An experience not to be missed and to recommend more than the Blue lagoon!

  • OK baths, outdoors, not too crowded in October. Not as expensive or crowded as the Blue Lagoon. No reservations needed when we visited. Close to other fun sites to visit. 
  • These baths are pricey but I believe much more affordable than the famed blue lagoon. We went for sunset and the views out over the martian-like landscape are incredible. The pools themselves are a go...  read more »
  • Myvatn Nature Bath are the second equipped pools of Iceland. It was an awesome experience in a late and cold evening by winter. Sitting on the snowy mantle and plunge into hot and blue water. I prefer Myvatn nature Bath, to most popular Blue Lagoon, due less crowded. Due the calm atmosphere of wellness. For shopping lovers, they can find natural beauty products made in Iceland and else. Good staff in. Not so hard to reach the site on winter time.
  • A must go place!! It was not very crowded at all. The temps varied through out the baths but felt amazing. We stayed for over two hours just soaking in the amazing milky blue water and the awesome views. We weren't warned but you are required to take a nude shower before getting into the baths.
  • I enjoyed this place very much. Calm and cozy. You can enjoy hot enough water. But don't be closer to the geyser unless you want to be cooked
  • Great natural springs pool. Good showers and relaxing pool. Make sure to enjoy your time in the pool with a beer or two. Don't forget to try the thermal baked goods.
  • Like the Blue Lagoon, but less 'Spa' and a bit simpler structure. Great water temperature, decent shower facilities, and they sell good beer (not just Gull, like the Blue Lagoon), even though they limit to three. Definitely worth the visit!
