Myvatn, Iceland: Myvatn Nature Baths

It's a little tough to picture how the idea of Iceland's baths work without going there. Here's a quick course.

Visitors pay a relatively good-sized fee and head for a locker room. There they take a community shower and scrub up, and then put on bathing suits and stroll into the water. The liquid is like bath water and contains some minerals that are said to be good for the skin. The bottom is covered with rock and sand for the most part. After a good soak, it's out of the pool and possibly into the sauna, and then a shower and out.

The Blue Lagoon gets all the publicity in this department in Iceland, but this is a smaller facility and probably is more comfortable for the first-time visitor. The Myvatn facility is open year-round, and is a great place to watch the Northern Lights in the winter time.
