Reason we like it: The only indoor hotel pool in Reykjavík has been celebrated by locals for decades. With tasteful ornamental interior design, the small pool and hot tub is especially popular during the holiday season, when the whole Nordic swimming outdoors thing gets a little tiresome. A trip to Loftleiðir is regarded as absolute leisure. As one local told me “I went to that pool when I was 8, and I still remember it fondly.”
Reason we don’t live here: It’s a small pool for special occasions.
Typical Quote: If I make enough money, I’m going to build on of these. And also I’ll buy a big plasma tv. And lots of hot dogs.
Located next to the Reykjavík airport.
Open 8:00-13:00 and 16:00-21:00 Monday through Saturday.
700 ISK. free for guests
