Most of the pools not located in geothermal areas are indoors. The number of open air pools is far greater and those can be found all over the country.  They are open year-round, regardless of weather.  Using open air swimming pools in Reykjavik and the capital area is a unique experience, particularly when the outside temperatures are a few degrees below zero.  There is nothing to beat a refreshing swim and relaxing dip in a hut pot - Hot tub in geothermal swimming pools all around Iceland.
