For a change from the classic swimming pools, check out the natural pools that Austurland has to offer.

Djúpavogskörin
Djúpavogskörin is a nice geothermal hot tub just south of Djúpivogur town. A borehole provides hot water and some locals put up two tubs for people to realx and enjoy the lovely view of the surrounding fjord.   Please make sure to keep it clean and leave no trace behind, even clean up if someone has left empty cans or other trash there.
Vök Baths
Vök Baths is a geothermal destination on the beautiful Lake Urriðavatn in East Iceland. Located only 5-kilometres northwest of Egilsstaðir, the largest settlement in the East, Vök Baths is an essential stop on any visit to this part of the country.
Laugarfell
Laugarfell is located in the eastern part of the Icelandic Highlands, a bit north from Mount Snæfell. There are only two km.from the road that leads to Kárahnjúkar to Laugarfell and it is the only part of the road that is not paved. In the summer there is good access to Laugarfell in all kinds of vehicles. Laugarfell offers accommodation for 28 people. Two natural pools are located in Laugarfell and according to old folk tales the water is known for its healing powers. There are many interesting tracking paths around Laugarfell and a number of beautiful waterfalls. Additionally, one can expect to see reindeer wandering around the area of Laugarfell. Laugarfell is open from the 1st of June to 30 of September.We open by agreement during the winter time.  
Laugavalladalur
Laugavalladalur is a green oasis west of river Jökulsá á Dal, some 20 km. north of dam Káraghnjúkar. Close to the site of an abandoned farm, there is a geothermal stream, ideal for taking a bath and a shower in the warm waterfall where the stream runs into the valley's main river. Please be wary of the temperature as it sometimes rises well above suitable limits!
