Food & Drink
Get a true taste for East Iceland at Vök Baths and visit our Vök Bistro and Tea bar.
At our Tea bar, we make the most of the naturally warm and certified drinkable water of Lake Urriðavatn to offer our visitors a unique selection of organic and locally sourced herbal teas.
All of our tisanes are steeped in hot water from Lake urriðavatn which runs out of the tap at 75 degrees celsius. Our tea comes from foraged flora native to the region and you’re likely to taste something entirely new! Additionally we offer cool and refreshing tisanes which are also made using the hot spring water from the lake and are then allowed to cool. A tisane is included in the admission fee.
Our Vök Bistro
Our Vök Bistro serves a tasty array of soups, salads, and cakes accompanied by a variety of freshly baked homemade bread. All ingredients are locally sourced and organic where possible; we work closely with neighbouring farmers to deliver the best possible seasonal components to every meal.
Vökvi and Vaka
We partnered with a local microbrewery, Austri Brugghús, to produce two distinct and delicious Vök craft beers brewed using the hot water from Lake Urriðavatn.
Vökvi is the Icelandic word for ‘liquid’. It’s a delicious 4,5% Blond Kellerbier made partially from locally grown barley from Vallanes.
Vaka is a 4,5% Session IPA, dry hopped with locally grown Lemon Balm from Vallanes. It’s name comes from the plural for Vök, Vakir.
