Guðrúnarlaug Pool

Located in North West Iceland and named after Guðrún Ósvífursdóttir, the heroine of the best-known of the Icelandic Sagas, Laxdæla Saga. The pool is free to use but be aware that temperature of the pool can vary. Close to the pool is a small turf cabin used as a changing  room.  Hotel Laugar and a camping site are close by.
