Few things are cozier than relaxing in a hot pool in the middle of nature.
Iceland has an abundance of easily accessible natural pools.

Hreppslaug Swimming pool
The Hreppslaug Swimming Pool, built-in 1928 is run by the non-profit youth organization “Íslendingur”. Hreppslaug is preserved as a cultural heritage. Water from hot springs close by is led directly into the hot tubs and swimming pool. Opening hours in September Friday 18:00-21:00 Saturday and Sunday 16:00-20:00
Krauma
Experience nature from its core by bathing in the geothermal baths at Krauma. The hot water originates in Europe’s most powerful hot spring Deildartunguhver, at a temperature of 100°C (212°F). To achieve the perfect bathing temperature we mix the hot water with cold water from Rauðsgil, which originates in the glacier Ok, the smallest glacier in Iceland. Krauma offers five relaxing natural geothermal baths, a cold tub to get your blood circulation going, two calming saunas and a relaxation room where you can rest by the fireplace while listening to soothing music. Opening hours: Every day from 11:00-21:00
Guðlaug Baths
At Langisandur Beach you can take a swim in the sea and enjoy the view from the comfort of Guðlaug Baths hot pools which can be found in Langisandur‘s rock garden.
Hvammsvík Hot Springs
Hvammsvík Hot Springs offers eight natural hot springs of varying temperatures, situated along the shoreline and merging with the tides for an ever changing experience. You are immersed in a perfect fusion of geothermal water, flowing from our very own source 1400 meters underground, with seawater straight from the Atlantic ocean. After a soak we recommend trying some of our delicious dishes inspired by our surroundings.  Come immerse yourself in unfiltered Icelandic nature, only 45 minutes from Reykjavík.  Pre-booking required.
Lýsulaugar - geothermal bath
Lýsulaugar is an extraordinary geothermal bath, filled with naturally hot mineral water. It is rich in green algae (chlorella) and various minerals and is thought to have a soothing and healing effect on the body. There are two hot. tubs, one cold tub and a large pool, which were renovated in 2019.  Open June - Mid August from 11:00 - 20:30. Extra opening hours are posted on Facebook.
Husafell Canyon Baths
Led by a knowledgeable local guide in English, this year-round tour begins with a short ride from the Hotel Húsafell to the trailhead in the remote Icelandic Highlands. On this 2-hour tour we enjoy a relaxed walk among natural wonders not found in many guidebooks, including the spectacular two-tiered waterfall Langifoss. We’ll also learn about Iceland’s renewable energy practices, cross an icy stream of glacial meltwater and see the site to Ok jökull, Iceland’s first glacier claimed by climate change. The highlight of our excursion is a serene soak in the recently completed Húsafell Canyon Baths, a surreal hot spring paradise that must be seen to be believed. Enjoy half an hour of relaxing, recharging and breathing in the pure Icelandic air before heading back to Hotel Húsafell.  While the tour is not technically demanding, it does require the participant to walk un-aided over uneven terrain as well as down 64 steps to the canyon floor to reach the baths.  Please contact for tours and booking information.
