Jarðböðin við Mývatn

Jarðböðin við Mývatn
Opened in June 2004, the 5000 m2 lagoon in Mývatn is filled with
geothermal water rich in minerals, silica and blue green algae. These
ingredients offer a nourishing and rejuvenating bathing experience.
The steam baths are built over fissures that allows pure and un-
polluted steam to rise directly from its source.
Architect: Halldór Gíslasson, department dean of architect and design,
Iceland Academy of the Arts.
