  • This classic hike starts from the outskirts of Hveragerði, the town of hot springs and flowers, into the beautiful geothermal valley of Reykjadalur. In the "Steamvalley" naturally hot water flows down of the slopes of Hellisheiði mountain range, creating the ideal place to bathe in an naturally hot river. The valley also has an amazing abundance of geothermal hot springs and you will witness everything from small gurgling melting pots to vibrant super heated pools of water. After exploring these wonders of nature we hike back down into the town of Hveragerði. 
  • This is a great 7 km, half-day trek that everyone can participate in. A unique chance to experience the local way of visiting the hot springs for a bath.
