Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Reviews

Sundlaug Sauðárkróks is clean, warm, and outdoors like most pools in Iceland. The facilities are clean and the pool was open in the evening. At the end of a day's travel, just the place to find!
This 4-lane pool has friendly staff. The nice woman at the front desk offered to keep my hotel key and the cash in my wallet while I swam. I let her, but when I walked into the locker room, after removing my shoes and socks, there were tiny lockers with removable keys for valuables.

Iceland has higher expectations than France for how clean you will be when you enter the pool. Wall mounted diagrams illustrate sudsing your head, hands, face, crotch, and feet. The pool has very clean water, a particolored bottom, and a lot of black material I assume to be volcanic grit, probably hard to avoid in this volcanic island. Swim caps are not required, and no standards for swimsuit styles permitted are published. There were usually no lifeguard during the 40 minutes I swam

There was a crane over the pool and it was said it will be covered later this year.
