The Hofsos swimming pool is quite simply magnificent. Arguably the most beautiful swimming pool in Iceland, it is designed by the same architect responsible for the famous Blue Lagoon. It may not be Olympic size, but because it has been built into the hillside above the sea, the views over to Drangey are breathtaking. Come rain or shine, the vista from the pool is a combination of marvelous different shades of blue; the clear blue colour of the swimming pool itself, the green blue sea, the dark blue of the islands and mountains in the distance, and finally the blueness of the sky on a clear day.
The Hofsos swimming pool is not strictly an infinity pool, but the impression you get as you swim in the geothermal waters is that you’re right next to the sea’s edge.
