We went here as part of a package booked with Dog Sledding.is. Having read about Iceland’s love of pools and hot pots, and particularly their rules about showering naked before entering, I was a little apprehensive about going here. Not so much the showering part,...More

As Iceland's primary natural resource is hot water, it is perhaps no surprise that geo-thermally heated public swimming pools can be found all over the country, even in the most remote rural areas. Reykjavík, of course, has its fair share. Swimming or simply relaxing in...More

This is a great facility. It's easy to see why the locals hang-out, it's part of the culture in many towns. Having been a lifeguard, I was struck by lessons being given by instructors wearing down parkas in 8 degrees. It's open everyday but Xmas.

We visited this pool every day during our trip to Iceland in the middle of winter (Jan 2018). Yes, you have to shower naked before getting is (single sex changing rooms) and yes they police this quite carefully but the pay off is a fanstasically...More

Easily accessible by bus and car, the mixture of different temperature pools, locals and tourists, make this a worthwhile and affordable option in Reykjavik. Explanations in English too.

I booked a Flybus from the airport to my hotel and then walked. Reykjavik is actually pretty walkable if you are used to a walking city.
