Icelanders are mad about their swimming pools; It‘s where people gather at the end of the day to unwind and have a little tête-à-tête. Filmmaker Jón Karl Helgason decided to document this custom in his film Sundlaugar á Íslandi (Swimming pools in Iceland), and the end result offers a wonderful insight into the country’s unique swimming culture.

We recommend you watch the film‘s trailer below.
