Information about Laugardalur

 

Laugardalur valley is an area  in Reykjavik. Among its attractions are the remains of the old washing pools - from which the valley derives its name.

In Laugardalur there is a botanical garden, and the small but charming domestic animal zoo. The main sporting arena is located in Laugardalur, and is sometimes also used for concerts. The Laugardalslaug swimming pool is the largest swimming pool in Iceland, and definitely the most popular one. The art museums Asmundarsafn and Listasafn Sigurjons Olafssonar are close by.

We recommend you enjoy a walk around the area, jump in the swimming pool for some local culture and afterwards enjoy a rewarding hot dog in the famous stand in front of the pool entrance.
