pack towels?

Hello! Heading to Iceland with my children, we’ll be staying in Airbnb’s, hotels, hostels. We will not be camping. Should we bring our own towels or are they available at the pools and hot springs? I know they are at the BL but what about elsewhere? Thanks!

I would bring towels, because at hostels you may well have to bring your own (policies are different) and at pools they usually cost a fee if you rent them.

We have loved these towels for our travels. Quick to dry and pack down easily and comoactly in your luggage.

Another vote to BYO. A fee for renting one is usually around 500 ISK (5 USD) per towel, adds up to a small fortune if you make several visits. I've seen nice towels sold at similar prices in the US.

We brought our own towels in bright colours. Made it easy to spot them among all the other towels.
