To make it easier for foreign visitors to Iceland to connect with Iceland’s hundreds of geothermal swimming options, the website swimminginiceland.com was created.
IceNews first reported on the site last summer when English constituted just a small part of the bigger Icelandic website. Swimming in Iceland has since added new features and been redesigned, as well as created its very own English language URL.
The website holds details and reviews of hundreds of manmade swimming pools and natural hot springs all over Iceland.
The website’s Dutch founder explains the philosophy behind the site: “Looking for such an overview of swimming pools myself, I was surprised to find only bits and pieces online when swimming pools are such a big part of Iceland and its culture,” he said.
