GeoSea

Vitaslóð 1, 640 Húsavík

The GeoSea sea baths enable you to enjoy nature in a unique manner. Thanks to the underground heat, the seawater in the baths is warm and comfortable and the mineral-rich water will caress your skin. While the warm sea works its miracles, you can enjoy the view of the mountain range to the west, Skjalfandi Bay beneath the cliffs and the Arctic Circle itself on the horizon.

For centuries, the geothermal heat north of Húsavík has been known to residents, who have utilized it for bathing and washing. Drilling for hot water at Húsavíkurhöfði in the mid-20th century revealed water that turned out to be hot seawater, too rich in minerals to be suitable for heating houses.

Instead of letting this hot water go to waste, an old cheese barrel was installed at Húsavíkurhöfði. There, Húsavík residents could enjoy the health benefits of bathing in hot seawater. Those suffering from skin conditions such as psoriasis have found relief by bathing in the water, which is at an optimal temperature of 38°-39°C.

The town of Húsavík sits on the eastern shore of Skjálfandaflói (Shaky Bay), known around the world for its rich wildlife and variety of whales. Húsavík is the largest town in Northeast Iceland and a center of commerce and services. It is the site of the first house built in Iceland, in the year 860, by Swedish Viking Garðar Svavarsson.

Húsavík is conveniently located for day trips to most of the major attractions in Iceland. From Húsavík it is less than an hour's drive to Lake Mývatn, Ásbyrgi Canyon, Krafla Caldera and Goðafoss Falls.
