Information à propos de Guðrúnarlaug

Guðrúnarlaug

Guðrúnarlaug, or "Guðrún’s pool," is a pool with naturally hot water in West Iceland. 

The pool has over 1000 years of history but was only reconstructed and reopened in 2009 after spending 140 years blocked by a landslide. Guðrúnarlaug's name comes from its original owner, Guðrún Ósvífursdóttir, who is a character in Iceland’s most famous love triangle, detailed in the fantastic Saga Laxdæla. Literature fans will get a special kick out of this backstory, but for any seeking to unwind, it a perfect place to stop and bask.
