Iceland is known for their incredible lagoons and hot pools. The most famous one, The Blue Lagoon has become very popular and crowded. While worth the visit, here are some less known lagoons you should hit up on your trip to Iceland.


Located in the town of Kópavogur, just outside of Reykjavik, Sky Lagoon is a recently opened geothermal spa that boasts stunning views of the ocean and the city skyline. Visitors can soak in the warm waters while enjoying the Northern Lights or watching the sunset. Enjoy a light bite to eat in Smakk Bar for a glass of wine and charcuterie.

TIP: As Reykjavik is the city you will arrive/ depart make sure to hit up Sky Lagoon for a soak either on arrival or just before you leave.

This lagoon is located in the northeastern part of Iceland and is surrounded by stunning volcanic landscapes. The mineral-rich waters are believed to have healing properties, and visitors can enjoy a variety of facilities, including saunas, steam rooms, and a restaurant.

Located in the northern town of Húsavík, GeoSea offers a unique experience where visitors can soak in geothermal seawater while taking in panoramic views of Skjálfandi Bay. The water is rich in minerals and is said to be particularly beneficial for the skin.

Icelands newest lagoon is located in the second biggest city., Akureryi Forest Lagoon is a 1.300 square-meter complex includes a bistro, two infinity pools with two swim-up bars, a cold tub, and a sauna.

The facility can accommodate up to 200 visitors at a time, and we will be open seven days a week from 10:00 in the mornings until 24:00 during the evenings. The spa's pools are heated up with all-natural geothermal water sourced from the mountain behind the Forest lagoon location, Vaðlaheiði. The water was discovered during a tunnel project and now has a greater purpose and a healing power.
