5 Charming Swimming Pools and Hot Tubs in Iceland 2

Icelandic swimming pools revealedDrangsnes Pool is located in the Westfjords of Iceland

The Icelandic swimming pools that are located in Drangsnes opened in 2005, which means that this bath place is pretty new.

When in Drangsnes, in the northern Westfjords, a stop in the hot tubs lodged on it’s beaches is a must stop. Admission to the hot tubs is free, but travellers may also want to visit the new swimming pool, located in a scenic spot with an awesome view.

All of the contrasts here is pretty high, but that’s what makes visiting Iceland so special. It’s an adventure for life. Here is a bit background regarding the area nearby:

Drangsnes is a fishing village, pure and simple. Conveniently located near the fishing grounds, it thrives in its minimalistic ways. In fact, the entrepreneur who runs the local restaurant and one of the guesthouses is a fisherman. He also runs the boat tours to Grímsey. Grímsey island, supposedly formed by a giant trying to dig the Westfjords apart from the rest of Iceland, is the biggest attraction in Drangsnes. The boat ride is only 10 minutes across. Grímsey boasts a rich bird life of puffins, fulmars and an interesting side story of fox farming.

It does not come as a surprise that in this small hamlet, the camping place is just by the municipality’s office building, as synergy is always important in small villages. Lastly: although the new swimming pool in town is of top notch quality, the blend-in-with-the-locals way of bathing would be to dip into the small hot pools at the shore.

1st of June to 31st of August

  • Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday: 16.00 – 19.00 (4pm – 7pm)
