The city also has some very nice and warm swimming pools to offer. Our favorite one is Árbæjarlaug swimming pool, that you could reach with the number 5 bus after only ten minutes bus ride from the city center.

Besides that, the city is a great starting point to take some day tours and see the Icelandic landscape.

One of them is the golden circle, the most popular day tour in Iceland, where you could see the famous Geyser, the golden waterfall (Gullfoss) and Þingvellir national park.

Another one is the south coast, where you could see two beautiful waterfalls (Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss) and the famous black send beach of Vík.
