Vesturbaejarlaug

Vesturbaejarlaug

Outdoor swimming pools in Iceland, that’s a long story. Sitting in a hot tub during a snowstorm not only keeps you warm and allows deep breaths of fresh air, it also has an important social function. Swimming pools are the places where Icelanders meet and discuss politics and whatever else is on their minds. Vesturbaejarlaug in the western part of Reykjavík is a particularly lovely example of a neighbourhood swimming pool, with four hot tubs (temperatures ranging from 36 to 44°C), a 25 meter pool for swimmers and an area for kids, whereas particularly tough folks can sit down in an 8°C tub and get their circulation going.
