If you fall in love with Iceland’s outdoor pool tradition, don’t stop at the Blue Lagoon, take a look at Reykjavik’s other spas. You’re likely to meet more locals, and they’re a fraction of the cost of the Blue Lagoon.

Have a favorite pool in Iceland that I missed? Let me know in the comments and maybe I’ll get the chance to visit on my next trip to Iceland.

Hi, I’m Chelse! I am a Digital Nomad obsessed with traveling the world and seeking adventure beyond the 9-5 office life. When I turned 25 I decided that I was going to stop making excuses and do what I’ve always dreamed. I went from having 0 stamps in my passport to 7 countries in 7 months. I encourage anyone who wants to live a Digital Nomad lifestyle to just buy the ticket first, and figure out the rest later!
