Package Itinerary

Indulge in the natural hot springs of South Iceland with this fantastic hiking trip into the lush and geothermally-active Reykjadalur Valley. Follow in the footsteps of this country's earliest settlers and dip your body into these luxurious natural pools, surrounded by picturesque hillsides and cascading waterfalls.

Your quest into Reykjadalur begins after being picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík. You will be driven towards the town of Hveragerði, a settlement famed for its scent of sulphur and steaming volcanic vents. Here, you will abandon the vehicle for your hiking boots! Afer lacing up, its time to enter one of Iceland's largest geothermal regions.

Be prepared for some truly magnificent scenery; you will stumble across rumbling rivers and trickling streams, scarlet red mountains, luscious vegetation and cascading waterfalls. So too, of course, will you see numerous examples of the area's geothermal underbelly (at certain points, you may be overwhelmed with steam), as well as fascinating, all-natural rock formations.

After a good while hiking, you'll feel the need to stop for a little relaxation. Well, whip out the bathing suit, for here you will be experiencing the warming pleasures of a natural Icelandic hot pool. In fact, "hot pool" refers to a section of a hot river that runs through the area (the majority of hot pools are too high temperature for bathing).

Thankfully, the temperature changes depending on what section of the river you're at, meaning you can choose the perfect spot to match your comfort level. Once you have fully enjoyed your luxurious soak, you will hike back down to Hveragerði, from where you will make the return journey back to Reykjavík.
