Secret onsen in Mývatn, Iceland

In my series about secret onsen, I would like to add an onsen in Iceland. Just outside Mývatn, a thermal spring has been created from exhaust water from the thermal electricity plant which creates a perfect bath. Much smaller than the Blue Lagoon close to Reykjavik, the onsen in Myvatn gives a rustic experience comparable to a visit of Nyutou onsen in Akita, Japan.
