Birding in Iceland

Hofsós Swimming Pool

The Hofsós Swimming Pool is fast becoming one of the best known pools in Iceland as well as the most popular tourist attraction in Skagafjörður. The pool is one of the most scenic eternity-pools in Iceland overlooking the island of Drangey and the fjord.

The Hofsós swimming pool is not strictly an infinity pool, but the impression you get as you swim in the geothermal waters is that you're right next to the sea's edge.

Not to be missed on the coast just below the swimming pool are the amazing basalt formations at Staðarbjargavík. It is said to have been the capital of the Skagafjörður elf population.
