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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

There are also five outdoor tubs and pools, one with a waterslide. Admission includes lockable locker, but many of them are broken. A sign says if none available, valuables can be checked with the staff at the front desk - decidedly inconvenient, but reassuring. Shoes must be taken off on entry to the locker room and a shower, nude, with attention to the head, hands, armpits, crotch, feet must be taken, as diagrams explain, and this is serious.

No swim cap is needed. There's one set of backstroke flags, a seldom noted detail.

A large class of exercising adults filled the pool while I was swimming, but they stayed out of my way, humorously unobtrusive, until I got the idea to move to another part of the pool.

Swarms of adolescents can make the locker room chaotic, as is usual for groups of persons their age, but they cover every place one could possibly sit with backpacks and baskets of garments. I applied the remedy of stacking the baskets, and the adult Icelanders must have approved, because they, as well as I, sat in the spaces opened up thereby.
