The swimming pool in Húsafell is one of the most popular recreations in the area. It was originally built in 1965 but since the pool and its surroundings have been renovated greatly. There are two swimming pools, as well as two hut tubs, along with a water slide.

The NYTimes gave this pool a bum rap - it's actually a really nice place to relax with the locals (and hotel guests). Just make sure to check the opening times. During the weekdays (in the winter) it's only open between 3pm and 6pm.

Nice and warm pools and 2 hot tubs! Great even in the wintertime to float on the water in open air while it is even raining. So relaxing

The pool area was clean and excellent for relaxing after hiking in the area. Spent most of my time in the hot tubs.
