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...More

Lovely pool & hot tubs with great views of Elliðaárdalur valley. A little way out of Reykjavik centre but easy to reach by bus and well worth it. We combined it with a walk in Elliðaárdalur and a visit to the near by open air...More

We had a great time here. This pool is a good alternative to the Blue Lagoon. At a fraction of the price, it was a very soothing geothermal experience. Enjoyed both the fresh crisp air of winter and the warm comfort of the pools. There...More
