Reykjadalur Hike

ISK 14.500

About the hike

In this valley is a hot spring where you can dip in and just enjoy the unspoiled nature landscape right in front of you.

Reykjadalur, which means “Smokey valley”, is a spectacular place next to the village of Hveragerði. It is also considered as a hidden gem of the south because it is less explored, though it is quite easy to locate.

Reykjadalur is a part of Hengill geothermal area and it plays one of the most important rules; to provide Reykjavik’s hot water, steam and electricity. 

Imagine just sitting in a hot spring with some steam coming from all over and when you lean back on the edges you can actually view the magnificent show of Mother Nature. So solemn and away from sounds and lights from the busy city. Just pure nature and peacefulness.

We park the car and hike for just about one hour to the spot where we undress and put on our swimming equipment. No dressing rooms, just a shelter to hide while you undress and put your clothes back on, so you better remember to bring a towel.
