GeoSea is a mecca for world-class geothermal bathing, popular among tourists and locals. Bathing is an important part of the Icelandic tradition – people come here to rewind after a day of hard work and socialize. This tradition has been around for so long that it’s become part of the Icelandic culture. 

Visiting GeoSea is a healing experience. Soaking in mineral-rich water can help to revitalize your skin. Warm water temperature (around 38-39°C) stimulates blood circulation, relaxes tense muscles, and leaves you feeling refreshed. You’ll also be able to visit a steam room where you can leave your stress behind. In the showers, you’ll find free Icelandic natural cosmetics.

Itinerary

Information

People of North Iceland have been using geothermal heat for bathing for centuries. During the mid-20th century, drilling at Húsavíkurhöfði revealed that this hot water is actually mineral-rich seawater, not suitable for heating houses. This water has been made to use by installing an old cheese barrel at Húsavíkurhöfði. 

Residents of Húsavík could come here and enjoy the many benefits of mineral-rich seawater, naturally heated through geothermal energy. This water is believed to have many health benefits and even remedy such skin conditions as psoriasis.

Water comes to the sea baths through two drill holes. One is located by the cheese barrel, and the other by the harbor. There's no need for chemicals to keep the water clean – a steady flow of water circulates between the pools preventing the water from becoming stale.

The GeoSea restaurant is a perfect place to enjoy a delicious Icelandic dish. Its modern terrace allows visitors to admire a beautiful landscape or catch some sunlight on sunny days. It also has a cozy interior and serves a variety of traditional Icelandic foods, such as cheese, ham, or local spring bread with smoked arctic char.

There are a number of ways of getting to Húsavík. Eagle Air organizes around 12 flights per week from the capital Reykjavik. There's also Strætó Bus Service provides buses throughout the year. Of course, there's always an option of renting a car or booking a tour to North Iceland.
