The Viking Pool in the Hekla Lava
The Viking Pool is extremely popular with guests at Leirubakki, in winter and summer. Groups of tourists often enjoy relaxing in it while admiring the midnight sun in the summer or the northern lights and starlight in the winter.
The Viking Pool is built from stone and lava walls form a charming enclosure around the pool. There is a changing area for both sexes built from stone next to the pool.
