The village's magnificent outdoor swimming pool (with adjacent hot-pot) has placed Hofsós firmly in the country’s collective consciousness. It was opened in 2010 thanks to donations from two local women, and its fjordside design, integrated into the landscape and offering infinity views, is close to perfect.

Infinity Blue ( offers a relaxing late-night 'float therapy' session at the pool (4900kr), available nightly from 10pm to midnight (under the midnight sun or even Northern Lights, if conditions are right). Bookings essential.
