Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and 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 admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, 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 the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, 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 the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Notes

The Borgarnes regional municipality has two other 25 meter swimming pools, one in Varmaland, which can be seen on Google Maps HERE, and the other in Kleppjárnsreykir, which can be seen here HERE. Unfortunately, those pools operate only in the summer months (June, July, and August), so they don't qualify for their own listings. Admission prices are the same as for the Borgarnes pool.

Facility Reviews

The pool has long open hours, no swim cap requirement, and no swim suit styles are officially forbidden. The water is very clean; it's bare feet only beyond the pile of shoes at the entry to the locker room. The pool's extraordinary standards for swimmer hygiene are illustrated in detail on the walls. Use soap suds on your head, your armpits, your crotch, your hands, and your feet. Free lockable lockers are provided and there is no way to use your own lock.

There's an indoor pool here; it contains no water, but appears very clean. Rather scenic fjord views from the lap pool. It's walking distance to "downtown" Borgarnes.
