Bathing and Swimming

The area around Húsavík is famous for its geothermal springs, often believed to have healing powers. Lie back and relax in one of Iceland’s natural or man-made spas, or take a dip in one of the local pools.

Geothermal Springs
Those searching for a natural place to bathe should look just outside of the town centre, to the southwest, where there is a geothermal lake in which you can swim. Unusually for Iceland, this particular lake also features a steadily growing population of goldfish, a result of local pets being released into the wild.

Swimming Pool
Along with the geothermal spas, swimming pools in Iceland are very much a national pastime. Often set within idyllic surroundings, and usually with a hot bath on the side, they are a regular haunt for friends or family to spend time with one another. Húsavík swimming pool is no exception. It has a jacuzzi, hot tub and a special pool for kids with a slide over the summer months.
