The Hidden Pool: Seljavallalaug



One of the most memorable experiences I had in Iceland were swimming at Seljavallalaug. It is one of the oldest outdoor swimming pools in Iceland, and is filled with hot spring water that drips down from Eyjafjallaj√∂kull.

It's only accessible by short hike, so it's fairly quiet. While we were swimming there were only a few other locals there, including the family whose uncle had built the pool in 1923, and a handful of other visitors.
