Krossnes Swimming pool

- Swimming Pools

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 this unique 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.
