Reykjadalur Hike

About the hike

Reykjadalur valley is a magnificent geothermal area surrounded by mountains and an authentically Icelandic landscape. Situated right next to the town of Hveragerði just 40 minutes from Reykjavik, it’s a perfect half day tour.

In Reykjadalur valley you will find the geothermal stream that is just the perfect temperature for a soak in a unique environment.

We hike from the parking lot next to Reykjadalur Skáli, about an hours hike away from the valley. Because this is a natural setting, there are no dressing rooms so we make due with the privacy barriers that have been set up to get changed into your bathing suits. Important note, remember to bring your own towel.

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.
