  • Vök Baths: East Iceland Geothermal Baths Entry

    1. Vök Baths: East Iceland Geothermal Baths Entry

    Vök Baths is a geothermal destination on the beautiful Lake Urriðavatn in East Iceland. Located only 3.1 miles 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 during your exploration of the East.

    Við erum búin að vera í kringum Egilstaði í 14 daga og erum búin að heimsækja Vök 3 sinnum öll skiptin hafa verið frábær, þjónustan til fyrirmyndar. Ég mæli með Vök :)
