Less than an hour away from Reykjavík is a small town called Hveragerði. The name derives from the quantity of hot springs and hot water surrounding the town. Many locals make the mistake of driving right through the town, given its close position to the capital, missing out on the wonders and warmth of Hveragerði. One specific gem is the town’s public swimming pool, called Sundlaugin Laugaskarði. Until 1966 it was the only 50 meter swimming pool in Iceland and therefor the main training pool for the national swim team. The house, consisting of a reception, changing rooms and a gym is built in a half circle in front of the warmer jacuzzis and children pool creating a shelter from the occasional wind. The pool and its facilities are very well maintained without changing the initial architecture. Sundlaugin Laugaskarði is perhaps the best swimming pool in Iceland.

Þórsmörk is one of the most spectacular places in Iceland. It is one of the most accessible areas in the Highland, a deep valley, and oasis cornered with glaciers on three sides. It is truly a place of ice and fire as one of the glaciers; Eyjafjallajökull has recently erupted with glowing lava flowing into two parts of Þórsmörk.
