小编摘要:去冰岛旅游,不去温泉泳池,你就OUT了!

导读: 冰岛丰富的地热资源形成了随处可见的温泉泳池,这些泳池已经成为当地人休息、闲聊和娱乐的一个中心。游客在此可以尽情感受当地风情,大型泳池还可提供泳衣租赁和衣帽柜。


A swimsuit might not be at the top of your packing list when travelling to a country called Iceland, but the local, naturally heated swimming pools are the centre of the Icelandic social scene, where gossip and news is exchanged while bodies are warmed and relaxed.

Thanks to the country’s geothermal energy, virtually every town in Iceland has a naturally heated pool. As you drive through the country, you are likely to notice steam leaking from crevices or spewing ahead on the horizon -- evidence of geothermal vents and hot springs. Piping hot water is siphoned off to public pools, where the water is minimally treated to keep it as pure as possible.

Do not let the lack of spa-like ambience turn you off, though: the clean, warm and unchlorinated waters are soothing and invigorating, and soaking in them is more about the experience than the surroundings. All pools will have at least one, if not several “hot pots” – hot tubs filled with water heated to varying temperatures. These small pools are where genial social exchanges happen – between seniors, children, business professionals and everyone else in between – and even if you do not speak Icelandic, people will likely try to include you in the conversations.

Most pools are very affordable, towel and swimsuit rentals are available, and the larger pools will have locker rooms with free locks as well as shampoo and soap in the showers. The best way to enjoy the pools is to alternate between the cooler lap pool and the hot pots or saunas. Note that despite Iceland’s notorious winters, most pools are outside and it can be a frigid run from pool to pool.
