Additional information

"The swimming pool was built by volunteers and filled with water in June 1938. The Youth society of Ölfushreppur were the biggest promoters for the construction of the pool and contributed much effort on the project. Swimmer Lárus Rist moved to Hveragerði in the year 1936, proving to be a great addition, and assumed leadership in bulding the pool, deciding on it's placement among other things. For some time the pool was the largest in the country and the National team trained there until 1966 when Laugardalslaug in Reykjavík was built.

Originally the pool was only 25 meters but is now 50 meters long and 12 meters wide. The pool is a so-called flow through pool and is heated with thermal steam which insures natural acid levels and purity of the water. The pool has a hot and shallow sitting pool along with a hot-tub with electronic massage as well as a natural sauna. The pool has a beautiful enviroment and good shelter. Lifeguards are on duty at all times as well as security cameras monitor and ensure the safety of guests as well as possible.

The town of Hveragerði handles the operation and maintenance of the pool" - Fréttablaðið
