Sundhollin thermal pool


Spas and pools

A hidden gem in the city, sit out side in the geothermal hot tub late night and watch the Aurora is like magic.

Sundhöllin (Translation: The Swimming palace) is a thermal pool a short walk from the bus station at Hlemmur. Sundhöllinn is an indoor pool with an outdoor Jacuzzi and hot pots. Just a short distance from the center of town, it is the oldest pool in Reykjavík. The pool is always popular with locals who feel it has a certain level of authenticity to it.

Laugavegur shopping street is just a stone's throw away, so for those shopping or walking in the vicinity, dropping in at Sundhöllinn is a wonderful way to relax and recharge. If it's cold outside or perhaps even snowing and you're not inclined to swim outdoors, then this is the pool to visit.

Opening hours:

Weekdays: 6.30am-9.30pm.

Weekends: 8am-7pm.

If you want to make the most of your Reykjavík Experience, you may want to pick up a Reykjavík City Card, which grants you access to all the public museums, pools and city buses, in addition to discounts on many other things!
