Laugardalur Park is located east of the city center and serves as the capital’s main sports area with a large open-air geothermally heated swimming pool, soccer stadium, sports hall, botanical gardens, family park and zoo.

Open year round, the Laugardalslaug open-air geothermally heated swimming pool is one of the best facilities in the city with hot tubs for adults and a rainbow-colored slide for kids.

Next door you can enjoy winter ice skating at the sports center. The recreational expanse has picnic and barbecuing facilities and the botanical gardens make for a lovely stroll with an extensive outdoor collection of native and exotic plants.
