Nature Baths in North Iceland: New Geothermal Sea Baths in Húsavík!
Similar to Blue Lagoon and Mývatn Nature Baths, GeoSea is a unique natural bath enriched by geothermal water originating from the depths of the earth. However, the location in Húsavík allows you to soak in geothermal seawater while overlooking traditional whale watching areas.
Additionally, puffins are frequently spotted in the bay.
Northern Iceland Nature Baths: Húsavík Geothermal Sea Baths Opening!
GeoSea, an abbreviation of Geothermal Sea Baths, is opening a 500 square meter nature bath area in Húsavík next summer. Thus adding to the variety of nature baths in Iceland. Other well-known nature baths include the Blue Lagoon, Mývatn Nature Baths, Fontana Spa, and the Secret Lagoon. Not to mention the abundant number of hot springs and pools, and the sensational Beer Spa – only a 5-minute drive from our whale watching in Hjalteyri!
According to the designers of the baths, the goal of the new Geothermal Sea Baths is to “underscore and strengthen local characteristics,” where “emphasis will be placed on stunning views and maintaining the tranquility of the site through simple, respectful architecture.”
Nature Bathing in the Whale Watching Capital of Iceland
Located on Cape Húsavík, the view from the new geothermal sea baths will be stunning, to say the least. Overlooking Skjálfandi bay and the North Atlantic, guests will be able to watch the fauna and flora of the area as they relax in the mineral-rich water.
Unlike other nature baths in Iceland, it’s a real possibility spotting whales while soaking in the water. The most common visitors in the bay include the famous humpback whale, minke whale, as well as the puffin! I mean, you’re visiting the whale watching capital of Iceland after all!
Northern Lights and Nature Bathing
GeoSea will be the perfect place for the Northern Lights in Húsavík when visible! No need to chase the Northen Lights hastily when you can sit back, loosen up, and watch them from the nature baths!
The best time to see the Northern Lights in Iceland is from September to April. Remember, the darker it gets the more visible become the Northern Lights!
Nature Baths: Warm and Healthy!
The water in the baths will be 38-39°C (100-102°F) and is considered to have amazing health benefits. The chemicals in the water are akin to the prehistoric thermal baths Baden-Baden in Germany. Rather than adding chlorine, rapid flows of freshly extracted geothermal water in the baths will ensure that the water is always clean.
The excess water will flow over its banks, into a stream, and run down to the ocean.
