Reykjadalur Hot Springs, Hveragerdi

4.7
#2 of 15 in Trails in Iceland
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.

  • Reykjaladur was the first stop on my island travel and was worth it 100%. Not too crowded even in August and opened up anyway, but a walk and good Footwear is provided. The starting point is a car park several kilometres uphill in the "Valley of the mist" for children that is slightly outside of Hveragerði from there also to cope with. On the footpath towards Reykjaladur's a lot to see how hot springs, a beautiful mountain panorama, and many wild sheep most end you will be rewarded with a bathroom in a beautiful warm River. Only the sulphur smell takes some getting this is everywhere in Iceland.
