There is one baby pool with hot water which suited for laid back adults as well, 2 hot tubs and 3 water slides that go into a warm pool. Baby was very happy and when it’s 10 degrees outside this hot pool is awesome

This pool was a great place to stop for a swim! The waterslides and warm water were a welcome addition to our day. It only cost us 1900 ISK and the facilities were very clean.

25m outdoor heated pool, not busy, plus the usual assortment of Iceland hotpots and ice bath, and a couple of slides. Popular with tourists and locals - very pleasant way to spend some time on a sunny afternoon
