Geosea - Take Me There Iceland


Book now with instant confirmation

GEOSEA is part of the historical roots of the fishing town of Husavik in northern Iceland.

The tradition of bathing in Iceland has long served as a social gathering point, providing people with an opportunity to relax and discuss the events of the day.

The facility is located on the western side of the cliff overlooking the Skjafandi Bay (the Roaring Bay) and offers a view of the Arctic Circle to the north.

Discovered during drilling in the mid-20th century, the water was found to be too saline and mineral-rich for general use, leading the residents of Husavik to establish the current pool.

The water comes from two wells, one located near the pools and the other near the Husavik harbor. The entire area is known for its diverse wildlife, including various whale species, white-beaked dolphins, seabirds, and different fish types.

Husavik is the largest town in northeastern Iceland and the first place where a house was built by the Swedish Viking Gardar Svavarsson in 860.
