The Hidden Pool: Seljavallalaug

Friday



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 Eyjafjallajökull.

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.
