Discover the beautiful geothermal area of the Reykjadalur valley and bathe in a hot river when you book this incredible private hiking tour. Those eager to discover one of Iceland's geothermal areas and explore the stunning scenery surrounding it should book this private tour now.

Your tour starts with pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. You'll meet the expert guide who'll accompany you on the hike. This hike is a private tour, so waiting for other guests is unnecessary — it's just you and your group.

Taking a private tour also means you can ask your guide plenty of questions and enjoy a more personal excursion.

From Reykjavik, you'll drive to Hveragerdi, where you'll find the Reykjadalur Valley. The name Reykjadalur translates to "Steam Valley" in English, and the area is renowned for its natural hot springs and geothermal activity.

Iceland is well known for its abundant geothermal activity, and the geothermal areas in Iceland offer a captivating display of boiling mud pots, powerful geysers, steaming fumaroles, and colorful mineral deposits.

You'll set off on a hike through the valley. The walk takes about an hour and is a relatively easy route. There are some uphill sections, but anyone with a reasonable fitness level should be able to do it. You'll also rest well at the valley's top when you bathe in the geothermal river.

During the scenic hike through the picturesque valley, you'll pass bubbling mud pots, steaming vents, and cascading waterfalls. Your guide can tell you about geothermal energy in Iceland as you walk.

You'll continue until you reach Reykjadalsa, a geothermal river where you can soak in warm, mineral-rich waters and enjoy the stunning surroundings. The water is the perfect temperature for bathing, so make sure you remember your swimsuit.

The water is also very clean and drinkable, so you can fill your water bottle up here. Drinking crystal-clear water directly from a spring is an Icelandic experience you won't want to miss!

Once you've rested and rejuvenated in the hot springs, you'll hike back down the valley to the walk's starting point.

Iceland's weather can change quickly, so don't forget to bring warm, waterproof clothing and good hiking shoes. There are no changing facilities at the geothermal river, so bring a towel to give you some privacy while you're undressing.

At the end of the tour, your guide will drop you back at your accommodation in Reykjavik in the afternoon, meaning you'll have plenty of time for dinner and evening activities.

Take advantage of this incredible hike through one of Iceland's most spectacular geothermal areas and bathe in a naturally heated river. Check availability now by choosing a date.
