The new geothermal resort, which opened in the north of Iceland, offers more than just warm water and minerals: from a high level over the Atlantic Gorge of the basin, you can watch seabirds and whales who love to frolic in the bay. We call it simple: a whale watches over health.

Geosea is the name of a new geothermal bath in northern Iceland under the Húsavík, which offers a relaxing bath as well as whale watching. Three pools with different water temperatures rise above the Atlantic Ocean; the views extend from the rocks of Husavik over Skjalfandi Bay to the mountains on the opposite side. After dark the nearby lighthouse illuminates the night sky.

By the way, the predecessor of this geothermal bath was a keg of cheese. While drilling in the mid-20th century, hot, mineral sea water was encountered. Residents exposed the barrel to use warm water at 38-39 degrees for swimming. Even today, thermal water from the boreholes enters the pools; The former barrel of cheese has become a real oasis for health.
