What to expect

Vök Baths is a destination opened in summer 2019 by Lake Urriðavatn, just northwest of Egilsstaðir, in eastern Iceland. 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. The 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. The 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, the locals want to celebrate and respect the pure water of Urriðavatn Lake, the surrounding lakeside nature, and the age-old Icelandic bathing traditions.
