  • Came here in January and I think it is a lot better than Blue Lagoon in terms of the atmosphere and the water itself. There are two pools, one with around 40 degree Celsius and the other one is 30. Obviously, the 40 degree one was better, in my opinion 😁. The water was really soft, it didn't make my skin and hair dry. It actually kept my skin moist for a couple of days afterwards. Also the place wasn't too crowded. There was plenty of space to move around.
  • Loved it! All the facilities were clean and well-kept. The pools were the perfect temperature for a long, relaxing soak. Though we went in the off-season, the pools weren't terribly crowded until a tour group came through. A much cheaper option than the Blue Lagoon in the south!
  • We visited in late March, towards the end of the day. We went here instead of the Blue Lagoon based on the fact reviews seemed similar, and this one seemed less 'touristy'. There were still a lot of people around, and it didn't seem as big or as busy as some of the Blue Lagoon photos I have seen. It wasn't all that blue, but that could have been because it was cloudy and getting dark. Later in our trip we visited some local hot springs (ones on the side of the road, and in backyards etc), and they had a much more authentic and non-tourist feel, and we found them more enjoyable and social than the more commercial Myvatn Baths.
  • We came here in April and we had like -5 degrees outside, but the bath was no problem. It's a smallish lagoon but there aren't that many tourists visiting it, so it's fine. The water temperatures are between 36 and 41 degrees. It has amazing view. The entry fee is about 4200 isk. The bath is very clean and modern
  • Amazing and less known nature bath off most people's radars. This is a great place to go if you are looking for a less crowded atmosphere. Pool side drink service and beautiful view of the volcanic region.
