This guided hiking trip takes you on a hike to the hot springs in Reykjadalur. On this 7km hiking trail you will experience the unique geothermal area of Hengill volcano. At the end of the trail you will have the chance to relax in the natural hot springs which is an incredible experience!
During the winter there might be ice and snow on the hiking path making the hike a little harder. Our guides make sure that everyone is safe and comfortable in these circumstances. We assess the conditions before each tour and provide crampons if necessary.
Your hot spring hiking adventure starts by hiking up to Hveradalir valley from the small town of Hveragerdi, located in about 45 KM distance from Reykjavík. Hveragerdi is the town of natural hot springs and you can see steam rise from the earth at almost every corner around the populated area.
The hike up to the naturally hot river where you will have the option to bath in takes about 45 minutes and the hiking path itself is in relatively good condition so the tour can be suitable for all over the age of 10 that are in a good physical condition. As this is a hiking tour we highly recommend good hiking shoes for this tour, these are essential during the winter months. Once you reach the place where hot water from the springs blends together with the cold spring water it is time to jump in and relax in the perfect temperature of the hot river, surrounded by magnificent landscape before making your way back down the valley to the starting point in Hveragerdi.
The tour is approx. 3 hours long, 6 hours with pick-up from Reykjavik.
