When you’ve had time to appreciate your surroundings and capture some great shots, your driver will take you to the Studlagil canyon on the east side of the Jokulsa a Bru river. Here you’ll spend two to three hours exploring one of the region’s most stunning natural wonders.

Studlagil has the highest number of basalt rock columns in the country. You’ll take an easy walk to the gorge, where you can marvel at the vertical columns towering overhead and the water flowing below.

Studlagil is a photographer’s dream, so ensure your camera is ready. You’ll have plenty of time to explore the area from different viewpoints, relax, eat snacks, and enjoy nature.

After a breathtaking visit to Studlagil, your driver will take you to the Vok Baths near Egilsstadir. Hot spring bathing is a favorite Icelandic pastime and probably the best way to relax after a sightseeing excursion.

The Vok Baths boast an idyllic lakefront location with two floating pools nestled inside the lake’s waters. You can enjoy a third pool near the main building and decide which temperature suits you best. Brave souls may also want to take a refreshing dip in the lake’s water.

This natural geothermal bathing facility also features a sauna, a cold spray tunnel, a complimentary tea bar, and a restaurant. The sustainability-focused menu focuses on fresh, local cuisine, and you can enjoy the superb lake and pool views while dining.

While at the Vok Baths, try the specialty herbal drink brewed directly from the lake’s waters. Lake Urridavatn holds the title of being the country’s only hot water certified for drinking.

Overall, the Vok Baths is an incredible place for rejuvenation. The modern facilities and ambiance are spot-on, so you won’t want to miss it. 

After an unforgettable day of sightseeing and hot spring bathing, your driver will take you back to the starting point in Egilsstadir.
