Iceland is known for its geothermal activity and that definitely has its perks. One of the biggest benefits of living in such a country are all the amazing geothermal pools you will find around Iceland. Icelanders love their pools more than most people in the world and it has become a big part of our culture. In the land of ice and difficult weather, we have always been looking for ways to keep warm and enjoying a geothermal pool is a great way to do that. This is why Iceland is one of the top countries in the world when it comes to number of pools per capita.
The bad news is because there are so many pools, it’s tough to know which ones are actually worth a visit. Here is a list of the top 10 pools around Iceland. These pools are mostly based on my experience but I also considered the opinion of some close friends. Please let me know if you have tried/will try any of these and tell me if you agree!
