4.6
#2 of 12 in Things to do in Hveragerdi
Enjoy the soothing feeling of warm water flowing around as you soak in Reykjadalur Hot Springs. Set within the beautiful Icelandic landscape of bubbling hot pots, mud pools, rocky cliffs, and misty fields with rising steam clouds, this "smoky valley" sits just 40 minutes' drive from Reykjavík. The hike to the springs on gravel paths and duckboards is fairly easy, but you'll still have to watch your step and dress appropriately. Keep an eye for the Djupagilsfoss waterfall as you walk along the canyon. Amenities include restrooms and a cafe near the car park, as well as changing screens near the springs.

  • I avoided on purpose the most noble terme Icelanders, and I chose this option completely natural. After about 4 km you find yourself walking in front of this river hot, when you dive in you forget the trouble coming. Totally free. Absolutely recommended

  • they are about 3 km of ida, a very hard climb, then you are softening, but it is long... but when you see the River, and that you can bathe in it... While it rains or simply watching the mountains... everything is worth. PS: The "changers" are a few sheer of wood that don't cover you even half of your ass. But no matter to people and not looks.

  • It is definitely a must-see. My boyfriend likes the walks by mountains and my I like the hot springs, this was medium and was of the best places in Iceland to my taste. To begin the walk you will reach a cafe called "hot springs cafe" and there you can park (have bathrooms) not going to Hveragerði (there are some articles on the internet that for some rare reason recommend you start there) walk is easy, they are 3 ida km and 3 km return. It is wear the suit since bath and change clothes when finished bathing in thermal waters (though there is plenty of privacy). In which the temperature is the right to get there are structures of wood and small escaleritas, do not put before or after that area since water can boil. The route is very beautiful. I recommend to wear water shoes or crocs (in the river there are many stone River and if you want to walk around the water you pinching your toes) plastic bags for the bathing suit and towel wet, a good backpack. In the part of Woods to change reach have spiders sometimes (are not poisonous but are dull and dropped everywhere) so that shake their belongings before returning them to and close their bags.
