So getting naked and wandering around in a field is not going to be an option for about days of the year. The cool and laid-back nature of Icelanders will have you thinking that nudism is widely celebrated like it is in many other European countries. In truth, nudism in Iceland is more typically done individually rather than in groups or at social gatherings, as it has only recently started to be popular. Spas and swimming pools are a big part of Icelandic culture, but they almost always involve wearing swimming trunks. You will be asked to leave. However, the water is so opaque, I doubt anyone would notice if you stripped off while you were in there.

Only a group space which was already quite full of naked, soapy women. I was aware that we had to shower with the complimentary soap without our bathing suits. I saw the signs and read them and felt a bit queasy as I did. I was going to have to rub my private parts with my soapy hands and rinse them in front of other human beings, with whom I was not intimately acquainted. I froze for a moment in the intersection of shower room and dry room attempting to hatch a plan. I watched people fold their towels and place them in metal racks before entering the showers. Without their towels.
