Iceland’s largest geothermal pool complex is a great place to keep fit or simply sit and relax with locals.

Laugardalslaug consists of three pools of varying temperatures. The first is an Olympic-sized outdoor pool with eight lanes for training. The second is an Olympic-sized indoor pool with ten lanes and a cooler temperature for longer swims. The last is the smallest and warmest, perfect for kids or for a relaxing soak.

The attraction's four hot tubs are very popular, with temperatures rising to 108 F (42 C). The largest tub has space for 50 people. Experience the social side of a Reykjavík municipal pool as people chat, play chess, hold meetings or simply unwind after a long day. Pre-book a massage for a very relaxing experience.

A new saltwater hot tub, the first of its kind in Iceland, was built in 2012. The cold water comes from the sea and is heated to 104 F (40 C). There are also a whirlpool, steam bath and 280-foot (86-meter) twisting waterslide, which is fun for children of all ages. The slide’s interior alternates between flashing disco lights and areas of complete darkness.

The pool has well-equipped changing facilities and towel and swimsuit rental. It’s important to follow the pool etiquette of showering with soap before entering. After your swim or soak, enjoy a snack from the on-site café, where you can order one of Reykavik’s legendary hot dogs.

The pool is located in the Laugardalur Valley, a large recreational area packed with things to do. Explore the Botanical Garden and see the many species of arctic flowers. The Zoo and Family Park is also nearby and features a terrific all-seasons playground. Rent a bike to explore the valley’s jogging and bike paths or lace up some skates and hit the indoor ice rink: There’s more than enough to do here to fill a day!

Laugardalslaug is open every day until late at night. It is a short bus ride or a 20-minute walk from the city center.
