Hofsós Swimming Pool

The Hofsós swimming pool is quite simply magnificent. Arguably the most beautiful swimming pool in Iceland, it is designed by the same architect responsible for the famous Blue Lagoon. It may not be Olympic size, but because it has been built into the hillside above the sea, the views over to Drangey are breathtaking. Come rain or shine, the vista from the pool is a combination of marvelous different shades of blue; the clear blue color of the swimming pool itself, the green blue sea, the dark blue of the islands and mountains in the distance, and finally the blueness of the sky on a clear day.

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.

The Icelandic Emigration Center

During the years 1870-1914 one out of every five Icelanders fled the country to escape the poor conditions in Iceland. The Icelandic Emigration Center at Hofsós is an impressive museum telling the story of those who set off west to make a new life in a different country. There is also a genealogical information and educational centre, a conference room, a library and a shop.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
