This pool is usually less busy than Sundhöll Reykjavíkur and Laugardalslaug. I recommend taking a dip in the cold one (4c-8c) than to the hottest one (42c), repeat a couple of times 👌. As always, please remember to wash before entering the pools in Iceland 🙏.

I used the Reykjavik card to get a free bus to Arbaejarlaug - very easy to get to and worth it just to have the place for yourself (well, almost to yourself!).
The steam was so intense it's hard to know where to swim, but that's very indicative of outdoor geothermic pools - it adds a nice atmosphere!
Good selection of hot pools and nicely set out.
I really liked it here and will definitely return.
As good as Laugardalslaug is, Arbaejarlaug isn't as busy so worth the trip just to have the peace and quiet around you.

In Iceland, you can find swimming pools everywhere. Most have hot pots or jacuzzi, shallow parts for children and of course, free soap and water. Care must be taken to wash well before entering the pool as not doing so, is regarded as disrespect and shabbiness. There is no time limit and the opening times in Reykjavik at least is from 6.30 in the morning till 22 at night. During the darkest time of the year, it is magical to sit in a hot pot, watching the stars...

I know why this is thought to be the best public pool in Reykjavik. They have everything and it is well maintained. Not over crowded although there are times when a hot tub is full of men of a certain age who seem to be their together traditionally. It is located in a neighborhood where we stayed to it was very convenient. If you are staying down town it would be a bit of a trip to get to it.

This was a nice visit on a COLD day. Nice non-slip, poolside flooring material. Hot pools were nice, some had little nooks and crannies. Steam room and Sauna. There's a HUGE slide that would be fun to try in the summer. Kids were playing on the smaller slide.

This location has a view over the valley. The pools are smaller than most of the other ones in the city, but there are plenty of options for relaxing as well as swimming. You may need to share with the local schools, who use the pool for their swimming lessons, but they stay in the two lanes at the very end and will not be bothering anyone :) If you are looking for a quieter and more local pool, this is the one to go to!

Very icelandic atmosphere. It's perfect for family time, and you can also go at night (till 10pm). You have different pools with different temperatures.
Don't forget to bring shampoo so you can take a shower after.

This a very beautiful pool. One section is indoors under a glass dome. That's the pool for small children and their parents, mainly.

Three hot pools at different temperatures. Steam bath with one wall out of glass, so it doesn't feel claustrophobic.

The slide is great fun, and you'll see grown-ups as well as kids having fun there. But if the temperature is freezing then the slide is closed, as it needs to have liquid water running down.

One of my favorite features is the made-up waterfall. It might be the only pool with it. It's on and off every 5 or 10 minutes. Just sit under the waterfall and let it massage your shoulders and back. It's great!

Very good logistically as the supermarket Krónan is within walking distance.

It reminds me of an infinity pool as it has great views toward Reykjavik and the valley of Elliðaárdalur.

This is a great facility with multiple hot pools and whirlpools. If you are over 67 it is free of charge. Wonderful for kids and families. Slides steam rooms, hot pools, children pools and more. We went just before getting on the plane to leave and it was wonderful.

Great day out! My son had a ball going up and down the water slide while I stayed in the hot pools.
There are 2 circular in ground pool tubs heated at 38-40 degrees, one at 37 degrees and another at 40-44 degrees (my favourite). There is a sauna, another lap pool and the main pool (still heated but much cooler) is separated into two sections off the lap pool - one section to allow for the water slide and another turns to a shallow indoor pool if you need cover from rain or cold. Bonus: outdoor showers to cool down after swimming and a drinking fountain which you need after a hot dip. You can buy food and drinks as well as hire towels. A locker comes with your entry fee.

They don’t hire bathers so definitely bring your own. And no mobile phones are allowed in the shower or pool area. On week days it shuts at 8pm and is easy to get to and from the city/pool with the Number 5 bus from the bus stop outside the BSI terminal. Took less than 10 minutes each way.

We were about the only tourists in what is a local swimming pool.

It is not like The Blue Lagoon in any shape, colour or form or experience, but it is a great and cheaper way to relax in a warm pool and hang out with the locals once you have experienced the blue lagoon.
