One of the quintessential Reykjavik experiences, for visitors and locals alike, is to bathe in the waters of one of the capital’s many thermal pools. This is spa-central – strike out from the city centre in any direction and you’ll reach one of these super-clean hotspots. A couple of recommendations: Laugardaslaug, where indoor and outdoor pools, hot pots, jacuzzis, and a water slide can keep you entertained and warm for hours. Or try Vesturbæjarlaug, a 20-minute walk west of town with outdoor pools and three bubbling little hot pots. If it’s summer, Reykjavikeven has a thermal beach, Nautholsvik, complete with sand and cosy lagoon. And your last stop in Iceland? Before catching your plane, stop en route for the airport at the famous Blue Lagoon, a bubbling cauldron of steaming pools, all set amidst a spectacular black lava field. Beats a coffee at the airport.
