Hot Spring Canyon Baths and Waterfalls

This amazing Reykjavik tour will afford you the opportunity to travel to Husafell, see magnificent waterfalls, and experience an Icelandic Hot Spring. Begin with a drive to the lush Husafell area with your professional, knowledgeable and friendly local guide. Along the way, enjoy stops at Europe's most powerful hot spring, Deildartunguhver, and the beautiful Hraunfossar lava waterfalls. After a brief break to enjoy lunch on your own (not included in the price of this tour) in Husafell, you will continue to the hot spring canyon baths.

The Giljabod - Husafell Canyon Baths allow you to escape the ordinary. Take an enchanting wilderness and waterfall walk through the Icelandic Highlands to discover a hidden hot spring framed by a magnificent volcanic canyon. Located on the edge of the Icelandic highlands in West Iceland, Husafell Canyon Baths offer a completely natural and authentic bathing experience in extraordinary surroundings. Choose from three geothermal pools of varying temperatures, each with a spectacular view of the surrounding canyon, mountains, and glaciers.

These natural baths, located in the wildest of settings, come with brand-new walkways and facilities that have a rustic feel. The locals who undertook the baths project went to great lengths to keep the entire structure as environmentally unobtrusive, sustainable and true to the area's heritage as possible. The on-site bathhouse is made from salvaged timbers from the area and the hooks in the changing room are re-purposed horseshoes from a nearby family farm.

The next part of your journey begins with a short ride to the remote Icelandic Highlands. Set off on a hiking trail with a local Husafell guide, where you will enjoy a peaceful walk around rare nature sites that cannot be found in any guidebooks, including the spectacular two-tiered Langifoss Waterfall. The highlight of your excursion is a heavenly dip in the new Husafell Canyon Baths, a surreal hot spring paradise that must be seen to be believed. Enjoy approximately 30 minutes relaxing, recharging and breathing in pure Icelandic air before returning to your ship.

This tour provides the perfect way to experience Iceland like the locals, soak in a natural hot spring, and have a drink at Hotel Husafell to wrap up the day.

Please Note: Your admission to the Hot Spring Canyon Baths and access to the swimming pool at Hotel Husafell is included in the price of this tour.
