The Nature baths are very nice and not over crowded. Lovely to soak in after a full day of hiking and watch the sunset from here. Bring your own towel so you don't have to rent one. They do have lockers avilable to hold your stuff. After hiking up the Hverfjall Cone,Walking the Hverir Steam vents and sulfur springs, walking around the Viti Crater and seeing the Grotagja cave, out time in Myvatn was at an end. What better way to end it than a relaxing soak in the hot springs? Make sure you remove any copper or silver jewelry - the springs will ruin them. You have to take a shower before entering the springs. The pool is a beautiful baby blue. You really can't see your hands below the surface due to the minerals in the water. There are areas that are warmer than others - the right side seems to be cooler than the left. Overall, the water temperature is around 104 degrees, which isn't really "hot", but it was very relaxing after the week we had hiking through Iceland. There weren't many people here, and I liked that. The minerals left my skin so soft that I didn't shower off after leaving the springs.
