Hotel Laugarholl
Ghosts, trolls and sorcerers To Icelanders the Strandir region is wrapped in an aura of mystery. According to lore it’s not only home to ghosts, elves and trolls, but many thought witchcraft was rampant here, used for both good and evil. Hotel Laugarholl is a peaceful and comfortable family-run country hotel located in the green and sparsely populated valley Bjarnarfjordur, perfectly situated for exploring the remote and beautiful wilderness of mysterious Strandir. We have single, double and triple rooms with private or shared facilities, a cosy living room with free internet access and a restaurant with special emphasis on fresh and tasty homemade local food as well as global cuisine. Next to the hotel you will find The Pool of Gvendur the good, a naturally warm geothermal outdoor swimming pool (32°C) and adjacent natural hot pool (42°C), perfect for relaxing after a long day on the road or hiking in the wilderness.

Laugarhóll Swimming pool
The swimming pool has a remarkable history. It was built in the 1940's as a joint effort by farmers from the area. There is a constant flow of hot spring water through the pool. Therefore, very little additives or cleaning agents are added to the water. The pool is open every day from 08:00 to 22:00.
Krossnes Swimming pool
Unlike many swimming pools in the region, Krossneslaug is heated by natural hot-springs; the rareness of such features in the Westfjords is due to the fact that this is the oldest part of the country, thus the least affected by the volcanic rift valley that runs through the centre of Iceland. At Krossneslaug, therefore, it is possible to embrace thisunique aspect of Icelandic culture and nature more authentically than you would at many other locations in the region.  It is considered an ‘Infinity Pool’ due to the fact it has magnificent views of the ocean, with nothing impeding the view between the two waters. Looking out towards north Iceland, this makes Krossneslaug a fantastic place to spot some of the country’s unique wildlife.  Whales are occasionally seen breaking the surface and raising their flukes, most commonly Humpback Whales, and the area is inhabited by many seabirds and seals. You also have a slight chance to see dolphins.  Located in the tiny settlement of Krossnes, Krossneslaug is a fair distance from any major civilisation. The nearest villages of significance, Hólmavík and Drangsnes, are both over 100 kilometres away, requiring more than two hours of driving. Árneshreppur is much closer, but a hamlet of just 53 people with few amenities.  
Þingeyri Swimming pool
