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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This facility shares its web page with two others (this is the first listed on the page); it also has a link to the pool's Facebook page.
Our May, 2019, reviewer and the pool's official website both indicate that the pool was to be converted to an indoor facility, but we've seen no evidence that the work has been completed.

Facility Reviews

Sundlaug Sauðárkróks is 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.
