Standard entrance to Vök Baths geothermal pools.
Vök baths geothermal pools are located by lake Urriðavatn close to Egilsstaðir in East Iceland.
Vök Baths opened in the summer of 2019. The water at Vök streams from hot springs deep under the lake. Years ago, during the long arctic winters, the locals noticed that the lake ice always melted in the same place. Our name, Vök, is the Icelandic word for these melted ice holes. Today, these hot springs supply all of the hot water for the surrounding area.
The hot spring water is so clean you can drink it, making it the only certified drinkable hot spring water in Iceland. Our café-restaurant will serve tisanes, soups, hot dishes and cakes made with organic ingredients from local producers. Vök also features a sauna, pools and cold tunnels on the lake shores. With Vök, we want to celebrate and respect the pure water of Urriðavatn lake, the surrounding lakeside nature and the age-old Icelandic bathing traditions.
