The swimming pool in Húsafell is one of the most popular recreations in the area. It was originally built in 1965 but since the pool and its surroundings have been renovated greatly. There are two swimming pools, as well as two hut tubs, along with a water slide.

We stayed at hotel Husafell for other reasons and did not expect such a great pool system. We had more fun here than in the Blue Lagoon, with the snow and the pools with different temperatures.

The NYTimes gave this pool a bum rap - it's actually a really nice place to relax with the locals (and hotel guests). Just make sure to check the opening times. During the weekdays (in the winter) it's only open between 3pm and 6pm.
