Often considered the Disneyland of Iceland, this amoeboid-shaped overflow of the nextdoor geothermal power plant is one of the island's most popular attractions. Its steaming waters boast certain soothing agents, luring hundreds of thousands of visitors each year to the cyan-colored shallows. Its proximity to the airport makes it ideal for pre or post-flight relaxation (they provide plastic bags for wet clothes, showers, hair dryers, showers, and other amenities). Grab a bite at LAVA, the on-site restaurant, for Chef Viktor's revision of Icelandic home cooking, or order a Viking beer from the swim-up bar.
