Mývatn Nature Baths Ritual in North Iceland

Mývatn Nature Baths are located in the North of Iceland, and despite its northern location, the region has a temperate climate. The long summer days when darkness never comes can be surprisingly warm. As summer blends into autumn, the landscape slowly changes into a miscellaneous panoramic view with shades of gold and brown. Finally, when winter comes, it brings snow, sparkling frosts, and the unforgettable magnificence of the Northern Lights. An experience like no other, The Mýtvatn Nature Baths is an area of fragile beauty where tourist services have been developed in such a way as to cause as little disruption as possible to what is a unique and highly delicate ecosystem.
