Vök Baths is a geothermal destination opening in July 2019 on the beautiful Lake Urriðavatn in East Iceland. Located only 5-kilometres northwest of Egilsstaðir, the largest settlement in the East, Vök Baths is an essential stop on any visit to this part of the country.
Vök Baths harnesses the geothermal power of the region to create a unique bathing experience with amazing views of the rest of the lake and the surrounding area. Fully immerse yourself in Iceland’s unique and untouched landscape and become one with nature at the country’s first series of geothermal floating pools.
An Icelandic hot spring destination like no other, the hot water is so pure, it’s certified as drinkable. Compared to the rest of the country, there are relatively few hot springs in East Iceland making Vök Baths an attraction you won’t want to miss!
Our floating pools have been designed to imitate the natural occurring phenomena of Vök so that guests can fully immerse themselves in the unspoiled beauty of the area. Additionally, there are two on-shore hot tubs, an outdoor pool bar as well as a steam bath and cold tunnel equipped with a mist shower inside.
There are indoor changing facilities equipped with private showers and lockers. It is possible to rent swimsuits and towels; simply ask at reception should you require a rental.
Get a taste for East Iceland and and eat a locally produced meal at our adjoining restaurant café. The menu changes depending on what’s seasonally available and great care is given to ensure our practices are environmentally sustainable.
Fully embrace the geothermal power of Iceland at our Infusion Bar and sample our selection of tisanes (teas) made from locally sourced herbs and brewed with hot spring water from the lake.
There is also a pool bar so you can enjoy a refreshment while soaking in crystal clear waters surrounded by the unique Icelandic nature. Read more
