You will find yourself lulling into a state of peace and relaxation as the healing water begins to work its magic.
A Deep-rooted History
Geothermally heated seawater was initially discovered when locals drilled Húsavíkurhöfði cliffs to source hot water for heating purposes. When found unsuitable, the Icelanders decided to utilize it for bathing and derive its many benefits for the body and mind.
So, although a recent addition, this iconic leisure spot resembles a long-standing ritual of Icelanders who used hot spring pools to relax and unwind after a hectic day. Today, GeoSea is a hotspot for both locals and tourists alike, serving as a communal space for casual rendezvous of the day’s events, heralding a centuries-old custom.
As much as GeoSea is famed for its exceptional geothermal pools, it also encapsulates many other unique attractions in Iceland. The baths, located atop Húsavíkurhöfði cliffs, offer panoramic vistas of the Skjálfandi Bay and Arctic Circle. GeoSea is also your best auditorium to catch a rare spectacle of whales and enjoy spellbinding views of the Northern Lights. As you feast your eyes on nature’s finest events, indulging in the warmth of hot spring baths, you will be questioning if there’s a better place on earth that’s as fascinating as this.
The Wonders of GeoSea Baths
The minimal bath built using a cheese barrel once has now been transformed into lavish, large-scale baths known as GeoSea. Two drill holes, one from the cheese barrel and the other from the Húsavík harbor, feed the baths, and the temperature is maintained at 38°-39°C to provide a comfortable experience for its visitors.
The healing powers of geothermal waters have been celebrated for centuries. A soak in this natural spa will de-stress, soothe, heal, and rejuvenate your body. The mineral-rich water has also been found to be beneficial for many skin conditions such as psoriasis. It will relieve your muscles, improve blood circulation, and awaken your senses. Reward yourself with a therapeutic soak and feel yourself energized.
Enjoy the Many Amenities
In addition to the baths, GeoSea is also equipped with a steam room and showers to freshen up. You can grab your favorite beverage from the bar located nearby or treat your appetite with some delicious snacks at the restaurant. Drinks are allowed at the baths, and water is available free of charge.
