Did you know Iceland has another Blue Lagoon? One which is less known, smaller and thus less crowded. You have to do a bit of driving, or even take a plane to get there. The MÃ½vatn Nature Baths are located in the north of the island, close to Lake MÃ½vatn. This region is a geothermal hot zone with steaming geyser fields of sulphur, bubbling mud pools, dramatic volcanic craters, geothermal plantations that generate electricity, hidden caves with deep blue, warm water and MÃ½vatn Lake with alien-like, pseudo craters formed a couple of thousands of years ago. spend a couple of days here while visiting the bubbling, smoking and active highlights and explore the region.
We stay at the fairly new hotel Laxa, a good address for those who prefer a functional new hotel instead of the slightly more decrepit, Icelandic guest houses or inns that often needed a renovation 15 years ago. An insider tip we get from Karl from Nordic Luxury, our partner during this tour, is to eat here Icelandic rye bread with a thick layer of butter and smoked salmon trout, along with a beer Einstock Pale Ale. North Iceland is known for its fish-filled rivers and lakes where the salmon trout will jump on your plate if you are not careful.
