Seljavallalaug is an open-air hot spring swimming pool by the Seljavellir waterfall. The oldest outdoor swimming pool in Iceland.
Seljavallalaug is a hidden hot spring pool along the south coast of Iceland. It is located between the familiar Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss (also known as forest waterfall and rainbow waterfall). Thanks to the increasingly improved traffic, this little secret is not as remote as it used to be, but still only a few people find it. Seljavallalaug is the oldest and best-protected natural hot spring swimming pool in Iceland. A dressing room was specially built, but it is not possible to take showers. Because it is located in a natural scenic spot, the original natural features are basically maintained around the hot spring, which is inaccessible. There is only one road between the two waterfalls that leads to this hot spring.
The Pearl Tower, which resembles a crystal ball, is a hemispherical building constructed by the Capital Hot Water Supply Company. There are exhibition halls, hot spring models, restaurants, etc. in the building. Visitors can enjoy the city scenery through the telescope installed on the observatory.
It’s hard to find, but the scenery is beautiful and suitable for taking pictures, but it’s very cold in winter
The oldest outdoor swimming pool in Iceland, there is no bathroom or changing room, the view is beautiful. You can enjoy the scenery without bathing in the hot springs.
