Water is life

Iceland is famous for its geothermal activity. However, East Iceland is normally not associated with geothermal heat and considered a cold spot. This makes Vök Baths an even more unique attraction. Throughout the centuries, people living around Lake Urriðavatn noticed certain spots on the lake that curiously did not freeze during winter. The Icelandic name given to these ice-free patches is “Vök” (plural Vakir).

The warm water flowing from the ground at Urriðavatn lake is so pure that it is the only geothermal water in Iceland certified as drinkable. You can taste the water and refresh your body at our complimentary tea bar.
