Tour Details

Hot Springs Nature Hike

Starting from the outskirts of Hveragerdi, a town famed for its hot springs and delicate flowers, you'll hike into the spectacular geothermal valley of Reykjadalur. Led by a learned guide, you'll see why locals call this "Steam Valley."

Reykjadalur Valley is part of the Hengill Volcano geothermal area. Even though the volcano is extinct, the area is still very active and home to bubbling hot pots filled with minerals.

A wide trail with a steady incline leads you up to the valley. The hike is around 2.4 miles (3.88 kilometers) one way and takes you through the Djupagil Canyon, where you’ll see a stunning waterfall cascade.

Hot waters bubbling from the tectonic energy below flow down the rugged slopes of the Hveragerdi mountain range. Refreshing pools of mineral enhanced water form ideal places to bathe.

Let the natural steam open your pores as you take in the scenic countryside. After drying off, you'll hike down into Hveragerdi, which is known for its greenhouses that are heated by the same volcanic hot springs you'll have bathed in.

This four mile hike is an ideal way to rejuvenate yourself like the Icelandic locals do. Book this Reykjavik tour today for a refreshing experience.
