This is a great 3km hike a gives you a chance to see scenery outside of Reykjavik. The area is open fields and valleys with slow elevation, and plenty of places on the path to stop and catch your breath, especially at the beginning. It rained off and on, so I was glad I wore hiking shoes and raincoat. The weather can catch you off guard too; it was cold enough to wear my knit hat (in June). I carried a swimsuit and towel in a tote bag and wished I’d brought a small backpack on vacation. I’m not sure how long we were walking; Morgan, our guide, let us stop a lot when I was getting tired, and she was there to take pictures of us near the scenic waterfalls and boiling springs. The hot springs at the end of the hike is the ‘ahhh’ moment. The path is a valley of colorful green and yellow mossy plants, lots of sheep, and then the creek. There are a couple of partitions on the short boardwalk in which to fling your clothes over; my husband had a towel curtained around me so I could change. The water is warm, warmer, warmest, depending on where you sit in the creek. There is nothing but silt and a few rocks there and it’s not deep. The guide lets you stay as long as you want. After that, the same hiking path back becomes easier. There are bathrooms at the bottom near the parking lot.

We took two tours with this company, they were both amazing. I really enjoyed the scenery on this tour on the way up and the bathing in the hot river was very pleasant. Take this tour if you are looking for something different in Iceland.
