NAT: Swimming Pools in Iceland

The abundance of warm water from Icelandic geothermal energy sources has shaped a tradition of public bathing as a warm healthy and refreshing shelter from the harsh forces of nature.  As swimming pools are located in almost every town around Iceland children grow up with swimming as a integral part of daily life. Swimming is therefore deeply rooted in Icelandic culture with people of all ages visiting the hundred public pools for both health and social purposes.  The warm Jacuzzi (Heitur pottur in Icelandic) is the perfect spot for relaxation and unwinding after a long day – and a perfect place to hear and participate in the newest gossip. The greater capital area offers a range of public outdoor and indoor swimming pools, with facilities including saunas and steam baths.

Please note that all visitors are required to shower thoroughly without a swimsuit before entering the water.
