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 a hot river. The valley also has an amazing abundance of geothermal hot springs. 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 hike that is suitable for anyone. It is a unique chance to visit the hot springs for a nice bathing session- just as the locals do.
