Quite pricey but a lovely treat

Waters were beautifully warm, great showering facility with toiletries provided. Came out feeling very relaxed and sleepy! Quite pricey but a lovely treat. Luckily it wasn't busy due to Covid and hardly any tourists.

A terrific bath house. Lots of different pools. The cafeteria is delicious too. Great views of Lake Myvatn and the surrounding geological features.

Amazing milky blue waters!
Aug 2020
A wonderful bathing experience in milky blue water (just a little bit smelly in the beginning) and a great view on to lake Myvatn. The pool area is big enough so you won't be too close to others. And there is plenty space outside the pools for a short break in the sun. It's very relaxing and a great place to be. Maybe a little bit boring for kids under 10-12.

This is a really great experience and I would recommend it. Unfortunately we came on a cold and windy day and therefore the water was not totally warm in the big pools. The water circulation was not very good, resulting in hot water at the surface and cold on the bottom. Fortunately, there were not many people, and we spend most of the time in the little hot tub with room for approximately 6 people, where the water was very good.
We went to Vök baths in Egilstadir as well, which was a better experience than this place. But I would still recommend Mývatn.

I wanna be a blue lagoon
Aug 2020 • Family
This place is much younger than the older sister in the capital region “Blue Lagune”. Own by the same people it’s clearly a copy paste of the well known (and exploit) big sister!
It’s a must to go but it’s also a cliche...
We have seen a lot of wrong instagram people in there posing with a glass of wine and perfect make up that made us laugh...
Booking in advance is necessary!

Wonderful time (and at fraction of price of Blue Lagoon!)
Aug 2020 • Friends
This was my second visit to Mývatn and it did not disappoint (again). Wonderful views from the baths and the water is just gorgeous. Last time we came was in mid-winter, so it wasn’t such a contrast this time between hot and cold this time. Would recommend at any time of year if you’re in the north of Island anyway.

Highly recommend this lagoon for all. This was our first time and because of Covid19 you had to prebook which we did. All the staff was wonderful and infection control was very good. This is a large place with at least 2 locker rooms for women and 2 for males so it was not crowded. Absolutely loved it.
