We had a very relaxing time here; met some locals and got to unwind and relax our muscles after the flight. Very reasonable entrance fee, facilities are spotless and we felt a part of the local culture. Highly recommended.

This is a great pool to visit in Reykjavik if you want to have the local experience. Lovely hot tubs of all different temperatures, and it’s definitley the spot that locals in the neighbourhood go to relax. Very authentic experience, rather than very touristy. Good...More

Dare I say it - ‘Forget the blue lagoon’. This is where the locals go, in this area. As we know, all towns have at least one public pool which tend to have several pools, hot pots outside and steam rooms/saunas. So invigorating sitting in...More

My wife and I wanted an authentic Icelandic adventure, and we rented bikes and rode to the local pool and spa. It is not as luxurious as Blue Lagoon, but we thoroughly enjoyed the geothermal pools, Olympic sized swimming pools, hot and cold tubs, etc.
