Warm and Nice

After visiting Blue Lagoon, it was a little disappointing but, non the less, it was good. It is so wonderful to be in a warm water and just de- stress.

Relaxed pool environment with hot tubs and an icewater tub. Clean, inexpensive and welcoming to visitors. Price seems very reasonable by Iceland standards. Also, here you can get an inkling of Icelanders' love for swimming and aversion to rules and signs. Kids run free, no warning signs anywhere, everybody just chills. Very refreshing.

The pool grounds were nice and clean and it was cheap to enter. There were 2 hot tubs which were really warm and not overly crowded. The pool was large with slides but the water was a bit chilly.

Has a variety of hot tubs and a nice kids pool and waterslides. Clean and well maintained. Bring your own towels, 800 kr to rent one.

What else to do when it pours all day in Hofn? Get to the pool of course. Friendly staff , 3 fun slides, steam pots , an ice bath and lots of fun. The only thing it lacks is a cafe.

Lovely little pool, complete with hot tubs and slides! Great fun! Please respect the rules and wash yourself in the nude before putting on the swimsuit. Seriously, no one cares, we all have to do it. :) I know quite a few Icelanders who get very miffed when they notice people not doing it.
