“Geothermal open air swimming pool”

Lysuholl Swimming Pool
Attraction details
Reviewed September 12, 2014

At Lysuholl you can enjoy a geothermal open air swimming pool with basic but clean facilities and a mountain view, ideal for relaxing after a day of hiking in Snaefellsnes National Park.

At the reception desk you pay a small entrance fee, put your shoes in a rack and head to the appropriate dressing room. There are neither individual cabins nor lockers to store your clothes. You are however allowed to leave your belongings in sight of the swimming pool.

A sign states it is mandatory to wash fully nude before entering the swimming pool. However, there is no supervision and given the absence of privacy in the shower I noticed several people with swimming pants on.

The swimming pool is filled and heated by a geothermal hot spring. Given the presence of algae the water has a green color. It is rich in minerals and considered healthy and healing. There are also two hot baths.

The background of the swimming pool is formed by mountains, although regrettably the view is partially spoiled by a wooden fence.

When comparing the Lysuholl geothermal swimming pool with the larger and more luxurious Blue Lagoon we judge the former more authentic and better value for money.
