Thrilling 7-Hour Nature Tour of Studlagil Canyon and Vok Baths from Egilsstadir
Embark on an adventure through the vast rock formations of Studlagil canyon and relax at Iceland's first floating geothermal pool, Vok baths, from Egilsstadir. This tour is perfect for travelers who want to explore East Iceland's natural attractions.
Before the tour starts, prepare for this trip by wearing clothes suitable for hiking, good hiking shoes, and a small backpack. Inside the backpack, bring your packed food for the trip, a water bottle, and swimwear for your relaxing dip.
The adventure begins by meeting up at a meeting point in Egilsstadir in East Iceland. After that, travelers go to Rjukandi waterfall in Jokuldalur, a stunning waterfall spotted on the Ring Road in East Iceland. The Rjukandi waterfall, also known as Rjukandafoss, is Iceland's twelfth-largest waterfall.
The terrain at Rjukandi waterfall is easy to pass through, and the easy landscape makes it ideal for families and kids to visit. In a few areas, the terrain can be a little rocky and steep, so make sure to follow your guide.
After a tour through the Rjukandi waterfalls, your guide will lead you to the next destination, Studlagil canyon. This natural rock formation is one of the most beautiful attractions in Iceland, and it has a marvelous view that is perfect for photo opportunities.
The flowing water from the Jokla river created this geological wonder over the centuries. The river flow has changed due to the hydroelectric plant in a nearby valley, resulting in a calming current known today.
At the beginning of August, the crystal clear water changes from a turquoise hue to a grayish one because of an overflow from Halslon, the reservoir for the hydroelectric power plant.
The walk to the gorge takes about half an hour. Travelers can eat their packed food and take their time to enjoy the natural beauty of Studlagil canyon.
For the tour's next destination, travelers will head back to Vok Baths and Spa. This geothermal spa is one of Iceland's awe-inspiring attractions. It offers the country's first floating pool on Urridavatn lake. The spa offers a perfect place to relax with its infinity pool with geothermal bathing.
Vok baths offer two onshore hot pools, a relaxing sauna, a cold water spray tunnel, a tea bar, and a restaurant. This attraction is a nice spot for families and friends to stop by for the day and relax.
When the tour is finished, travelers can either stay at Vok baths for a relaxing spa day or be dropped off at the meeting point in Egilsstadir.
