"Adults and children crowd a small public pool in Reykjavík to soak in natural hot water drawn from nearby springs. Although air temperatures range from the high 50's in summer to below freezing in winter, the water remains around 85 degrees. Numerous outdoor pools operate year-round, doing a brisk business even in cold weather. Those who have taken the plunge say that few pastimes are more exhilarating than sitting in the warm bath when arctic winds are swirling about them."
