Yippee! My Icelandic travel lust just got even stronger. This morning I read that this amazing hidden pool of Seljavallalaug is Iceland’s best kept secret and totally free to use if you’re nifty enough to stumble upon it yourself. Yup, there are no exact directions.
Originally, this gem was built in the beginning of the 20th century to teach locals how to swim, but by now it is a protected site and a one of a kind treat filled with hot spring water which trickles down from Eyjafjallajökull.
To find it you have to walk through the mountains down an uneven track that appears to lead to nowhere. However, if you look well enough, at the base of it, near Seljavellir, you will spot the pool right away. I also read that the water colour changes according to seasons and it's super healthy for your skin. Holy moly, what a treat this would be after a long day of hiking, don't you think? Have you been to Iceland already? Planning to?
P.S: Iceland - land of giants, and this incredible ice cave.
P.P.S: Plus, the Icelandic red dress, the dreamy swimming hole and that awesome spot.
