24 hour summer night opening in Vök Baths

June25 - 26

For the occasion of the summer solstice, World Bathing Day, and Midsummer John the Baptist day, Vök Baths will be open from 10 am on the 25th of June, until 10 pm on the 26th of June. We want to give our guests the chance to experience the magic of these 24hrs of daylight nights.

We will kickstart the summer night opening with live music from Øystein Gjerde at 10 pm.

June 21 is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, where we have the longest period of sunlight hours here in Iceland. The summer solstices occur when the sun travels along its northernmost path in the sky.

June 22 is World Bathing Day. On this day, people around the planet are invited to celebrate humanity’s common connection to water through the practice of bathing. The simple act of immersing oneself in water has the power to break down barriers between people of diverse backgrounds and to bring communities closer together. At this time of change and disruption, bathing reminds us of the interconnections between the well-being of our communities and the well-being of our planet.
