If you read information about Iceland and places to visit around the countryside, you will soon learn about and discover many places where you can take a bath in a geothermal pool. There are dozens of delightful small pools as well as a few larger ones in the south region, in the Highland and in the Westfjords. All of them are very popular and most available free of charge since the hot water comes from the ground and flows like a creek, often mixed with cold water to give the right temperature. These pools are quickly becoming one of the most popular attraction in Iceland and not without reason. It is an enjoyable experience to stop by the road, change into swimming suits by the rocks and dive into the warm water. The best known geothermal pool in Iceland is, of course, the Blue Lagoon. Well advertised throughout the world and hugely popular. For those who travel in the northern region in Iceland, there is also another geothermal bath, similar to the Blue Lagoon, the Myvatn Nature Baths. Both large and come with facilities like showers and patios etc. And in both, there is a charge. Although it 's hard to evaluate which is better as both have their uniqueness and both are an experience to visit, the Myvatn Nature Baths have at least one advantage. It is a natural pool with a view. You can visit the bath in winter as well as summer and enjoy the magnificent Myvant and other beautiful places surrounding the bath. It is a unique experience to sit in the warm water and have this endless view in front of you.
