Pool
“Local swimming pool with indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs and sauna. Our swimming pools and hot tubs are a huge part of Icelandic culture. Many locals meet there in the mornings to chat before they start their day. We recommend going there in the morning to freshen up or in the evening to relax after a long day out and about.”
