Geothermal Pools

Geothermal Pools

Few things are more cozy than relaxing in a hot pool in the middle of nature. The Westfjords has an abundance of easily accessible natural pools for you to enjoy.


Built as a school for the children of the area, Reykjanes was strategically located for its geothermal springs and ease of access by boats. Reykjanes has since the school closed down been a hotel and a camping place and a popular stop to take gas. It was however always a little bit off the main route for drivers, but with new bridges and roads opened in 2009 it is now again right in the centre. Its main attraction, though, is Iceland's longest swimming pool, intended to be 50 metres but by mistake built a bit longer. Due to the warm water from the hot spring, the pool has sometimes been referred to as "Iceland´s largest hot pot".


Heydalur is a paradise for those who like birdlife and to take pictures of birds. Heydalur offers horseback rides in Heydalur valley and many attractions for the family. The hot natural pool in Heydalur is a few minute walk from the country Hotel Heydalur. Sitting in the hot natural pool feeling the fatigue in your body float away is a feeling like no other. Some say that laying the hot pool in Heydalur gives you strength, and for many that is so true.
