The Krossneslaug pool, located on the oceanfront in the northern Westfjords, was constructed by local farmers in 1954 and is a beautiful feature of the area. The natural geothermal springs heat the water in the man-made pool, which is small but good enough and clean.
The pool is set up so that people can relax in the water while taking in the beautiful view of the ocean and the birds flying around. Various marine mammals, including whales, birds, and seals, call this region home. Whales, especially humpbacks, are sometimes seen breaching in the distance. There’s a remote possibility that dolphins may make an appearance, too.
Mineral Thermal Springs Pool
Krossneslaug features two swimming pools, and all visitors must pay an entrance fee. The larger, more traditional pool has a rectangular shape and keeps a temperature of 34 °C/93 °F, while the smaller hot tub is roughly 38°C /100 °F. The operator usually makes his home there from June through August and takes good care of the property.
Heated changing rooms, restrooms, and showers are included in the price of admission.
The pool is only reachable from about mid-May until the end of August. Swimming attire is required, and showering before getting in the water is customary to help keep the facility clean.
Krossneslaug, which is located in the little town of Krossnes, is removed from the rest of the world. Hólmavk and Drangsnes, the two closest significant communities, are almost 100 km/60 miles away and are more than two hours of driving time. The considerably smaller and less developed hamlet of Arneshreppur is significantly closer and considered the town that the pool is in.
