This classic hike starts from the
outskirts of Hveragerði, the town of hot springs and flowers, into the
beautiful geothermal valley of Reykjadalur. In the "Steamvalley"
naturally hot water flows down of the slopes of Hellisheiði mountain range,
creating the ideal place to bathe in a naturally hot river. The valley also has
an amazing abundance of geothermal hot springs. You will witness everything
from small gurgling melting pots to vibrant super heated pools of water. After
exploring these wonders of nature we hike back down into the town of
Hveragerði. This is a great 7 km, half-day trek that is suitable for
anyone. It is a unique chance to visit the hot springs for a nice bathing
session- just as the locals do.
This trip begins through
Iceland's beautiful meadows and lava fields. Experience the unique gait tölt of
the horses during your journey through the stunning and peaceful countryside.
This trip includes taking you past several farms intending to give you an idea
of how the agriculture and horse breeding have developed in the last few
decades. At the end of your horse riding adventure you are invited to our old
farmhouse for coffee and some authentic Icelandic home baked goods!
The hot springs portion of this trip is in the morning and the horseback riding follows in the afternoon.
