The pool is comfortable to be in, with it's warm thermal temperature. The view is the big draw, and it is a place to take a deep breath and relax. It's efficiently run and a very reasonable cost. A nice stop on the way around...More

The Hosfos Thermal Bath is well worth a visit. The pool is situated on coastal overlook with stunning views--it appears as though you are right on the edge of a precipice when you are soaking and swimming. The facilities are among the cleanest to be...More

A fantastic heated pool with near infinity views with a hot tub next to it at a hotter temperature. The view was stunning as you could look across the sea and spot the mountains poking out of the clouds. The pool itself was a nice...More

Out of all of the thermal pools that we visited in Iceland, this was the only one that actually looked like a typical pool. The view over the fjord and across to the mountains was beautiful. The pool was a warm 31C which we found...More

This wasn’t quite what we expected. We found this place by luck as we just happened to be camping nearby. There are two pools, one is very small and very hot and one much bigger, about 30m long. The pool is literally right next to...More

the setting could not be more scenic. facilities are clean and well organized. There were many visitors outside taking photos of the pool and its location. We were glad we were actually in the pool - it had the best view.

The change room area was very clean and modern, and looked like it was built very recently. The hot tub was a little small and crowded, but still perfect for relaxing. The view from the pool was fantastic!!

Our group of 12 chose to camp in Hofsos just to end our first night with the full group at this awesome public pool. It seems newly built and has plenty of space. Just remember, head, armpit, crotch and toes!

The water in the big pool has 33 degrees Celsius and the one in the small pool has almost 40. You can swim there even if outside is freezing. I would recommend a swimming cap because your head will be outside most of the... More
