Our experience will take half of the day. After picking you up at your accomodation we will start our trip heading towards Hveragerði. The village is located roughly 50km from downtown Reykjavik - it will be a nice 45min drive with picturesque sceneries of the famous icelandic nature outside. Upon arrival we will start an hour long hike up to the nearby volcanic mountains passing fast running rivers, little waterfalls and hot springs - everything we all admire in Iceland. At the end of the hike we will reach what`s called the Reykjadalur Hot Spring Thermal River, where we will enjoy the quiteness and wellness of bathing in the middle of the mountains (the temperature changes downhill so you will have the opportunity to choose whatever you feel comfortable with). The bathing time is up to you:) Just consider the 40min hike and the drive back to your place.
Hello, World! Alessandro from Italy here:) Travelling has always been my main passion - visited 36 countries, hitchhiked more than 30,000 km, lived in 3 different places by my 21. That is how i fell in love with the breathtaking Iceland one and a half years ago. I got to discover the whole island on my multiple trips around the country and to know a lot about different places (from main attractions to hidden spots). Since meeting new people and sharing experiences always were the main points throughout my journeys I could be the suitable host to guide you around the best sceneries you have ever seen!

The hiking path goes up, down and along the faces of hills; and though it sometimes gets quite steep, is manageable for anyone comfortable on their feet in reasonable health, so long as the weather is fair. Reykjadalur is best know for the heated river that runs through it. Water boiling out of dozens of hot springs in the hills trickle into one body, which is also fed with glacier and rainwater. The result is a wonderfully warm, gentle stream.
