On our way we do some sightseeing and visit sites off the beaten track, we cycle by the “Underground Bakery” where the locals bake their well known Geysir bread in the ground in geothermal steam. We then continue to the old Steam Bath Cave near the fissure of Grjótagjá, the old bathing caves, before we get to the Mývatn Nature Baths for approximately one hour of relaxing in the warm water and natural steambaths. Bring Swimsuits & towels with you or rent some at the Nature Baths.

Lake Mývatn area
We start from the Hike&Bike office by lake Mývatn at 18:00 (06:00pm) and cycle on our mountain bikes through the village of Reykjahlíð. We make some stops on the way and enjoy the view and learn about the local traditions. A stop by the geothermal area at Bjarnaflag to see the underground bakery will give you an insight into how locals use the geothermal heat. Then wo continue to a cave that the locals used to use as a natural steam bath. After that we have a bath at the Mývatn nature baths.
