Experience one of Iceland’s most important customs, communal bathing, without splurging on tickets for the Blue Lagoon. For only $5 (compared to a minimum of $50 for the Blue Lagoon), you can join scores of Reykavjikers soaking in the public pools after a long day. Start by stripping down for a thorough shower (hygiene is strictly enforced, as the baths do not have chlorine), and then heading out to the mineral-rich pools. Each of the city’s municipal pools have different designs and facilities, but all come with gurgling hot water than can reach temperatures of nearly 108 degrees Fahrenheit.
