Experience the wonders of a geothermal bath while surrounded by the hidden beauty of the Highlands of Iceland on this small group tour of Husafell Canyon Baths. This adventure is perfect for travelers who want a quick getaway from the tourist crowds of the city and the cold weather of Iceland.

The short adventure begins as you meet your English-speaking guide in the Husafell Activity Center, 82 miles (132 kilometers) from Reykjavik. Your guide will be your source of information so you can ask them for assistance and any questions you have in mind for the next two hours.

From the activity center, the guide will take you for a short ride to the beginning of the hiking trail. For nearly an hour, you will walk along the wilderness around Husafell in the Icelandic Highlands, which tourists and locals usually don’t explore.

Husafell is a sweeping farm and church site located in the Borgarfjordur district of West Iceland. Once a former rectory location, the area is now an oasis for travelers going to the Golden Circle, Westfjords, or the Highlands. With the addition of the canyon baths, a trip to Husafell is now more inviting for local and foreign tourists.

The hiking tour is relatively easy because children are also welcome to join. The relaxed walk will take you to some stunning landscapes not often included in popular Icelandic excursions. 

Some attractions you’ll see include the two-tiered Langifoss waterfall and the site to Okjokull, the first Icelandic glacier claimed by climate change. While hiking, you’ll also learn about Iceland’s renewable energy sources, particularly geothermal and hydropower. Although this is the usual tour route, it can still change depending on the weather conditions.

After the short hike around the nature of Iceland, you’ll arrive at the highlight of your Icelandic tour, where you can dip in the calming waters of a hot spring.

The Husafell Canyon Baths feature two geothermal pools where multiple people can bathe simultaneously. Soaking in the warm waters of the pools at average temperatures of 86 to 105 F (30 to 41 C) is the best way to relax after an adventurous day. 

What elevates the geothermal bath experience is immersing yourself in the surrounding natural environment. The pools, made of flagstones, sit at the bottom of a spectacular canyon. In the distance, you can also see towering mountains and glaciers that will make great subjects for photography.

While in the area, you may also use its facilities, including the wooden bathhouse or changing room. 

After half an hour of relaxing and hot spring bathing, you’ll return to your hotel in Husafell or the activity center, where you can continue your Icelandic journey.

Explore the natural beauty of Iceland through hiking and end your day with an unforgettable geothermal bath at the Husafell Canyon Baths by joining this small group tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
