Additional information:

  • Pool 1: 50m x 22m, 8 lanes, 1m - 1.74m depth, outdoors, 28°C (82°F).
  • Pool 2: 50m x 25m, 10 lanes, indoors, "comfortable temperature for training".
  • Pool 3: 25m, 4 lanes, ~1m depth children's pool, indoors, "warmer than the other pools".


There is a free form pool next to the outdoor 50m pool, it's about 30m long and, if quiet, is good for drills. It's warmer than the 50m pool. Various hotpots are alongside the outdoor pool at varying temperatures to relax in after a training session. It also has hot pots, Jacuzzi, thermal steam bath and an 86-meter-long water slide for young and old. One can also get a massage (www.lauganudd.is).

This facility is situated in Laugardalur valley, the center for athletics and recreation in Reykjavík. The area surrounding the pool has paths good for jogging and walking. In winter there are paths for cross-country skiing. A short distance from the pool is the Botanical Garden where one can see numerous plants and flowers while enjoying an especially peaceful atmosphere. Nearby is the Farm Zoo which everyone staying in Reykjavík should visit. On display are Icelandic pets and a variety of wild animals. Laugardalslaug has a cafeteria where you can get some warm and cold drinks, cakes and sandwiches.

    We stayed at hotel cabin just down the road went after we arrived for a couple of hours well worth it sat in the hot geothermal pools with the temp -3 not the blue lagoon. but well worth a visit.
  • K.F.  - Best place in town
    I went every day to Laugardalslaug. It is the best place to relax and to get power in Reykjavik and it is really not expensive.
  • Richard  - excellent cure for jet lag
    We arrived in Reykjavik at about 8am... too early to check into our accommodation. So we took the 14 bus to Laugardalslung. It was great! It felt wonderful to soak away the effects of jet lag. A bit of exercise, a soak in the hot pots, some time in the steam room, a nice shower afterwards... the kids went on the water slide, so they were happy... it was an excellent choice for our first day in Reykjavik.

    We also went to the Blue Lagoon on our vacation, but we liked Laugardalslung a lot more. Blue Lagoon is full of tourists; Laugardalslung is full of Icelanders. Blue Lagoon felt dirty to me; Laugardalslung felt clean. When I return to Reykjavik I will return to Laugardalslung.
  • megan latham  - loved it
    when i went here after our whale watching trip being cancelled i wasn't as depressed as i originally was the slide was epic the hot tub so lush but one thing was the cleanliness i found some peices of plastic at the pool at the end of the slide which was weird :zzz :grin
