Sundlaug Eskifjörður | Eskifjordur Swimming Pool

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The facility also has a Facebook page.
The local tourism website also has a page about the pool, with some nice photos but, when we visited in May, 2019, the admission prices were well out of date. See it HERE.

Facility Reviews

Photographs really do not do this place justice. The setting is extraordinary, with steep fjord walls on either side bedecked with braided waterfalls. I paid ISK 900, which included a lockable locker. Shoes off before entering the locker room! Shower nude, scrubbing all of the public-health-important parts of your body – see diagram in shower – with soap and hot water. The 25 meter pool is somewhat shallow at the shallow end and can be divided into four lanes, although at the time of my visit it was only divided into two narrow and one wide. A waterslide in spirals adorns a smaller children’s pool and there are two or three smaller soaking tubs at higher temperatures than the lap pool. No swim cap is required. Unlike many pools in Iceland, this one has backstroke flags. At the bottom of the pool there is the unavoidable windblown volcanic grit, but the water is crystal clear and exceptionally clean.
