Sundhollin thermal pool
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.
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!
