A mixed bag of hiking, sightseeing and swimming, all in the area of the capital city.
Come along on this exciting tour which combines a brisk hike through the countryside just outside Reykjavik with a chance to meet the Icelandic horse and take a swim in a geothermal heated pool. This tour is for anyone who would like to get a little exercise on their vacation, without overdoing it, with an easy hike and time to relax in a warm pool at the end.
You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik and taken to the starting point for a hike to the top of the mountain, where you will spend about 1.5 hours hiking. It’s simply invigorating to be in the natural environment of Iceland!
Úlfarsfell is a small mountain that gives a great view over the majestic Mt. Esja, the Blue Mountains, the Reykjavik area, Faxafloi bay and the Old Harbour area. On a clear day, you can see parts of the Reykjanes peninsula and the Hengill geothermal area. You may even be able to spot Snæfellsjökull glacier on the horizon!
Next, you’ll visit Icelandic horses in their own natural environment base of Mt. Esjan to say hello to these charming little animals. The Icelandic horse is a special breed descended directly from the first horses brought to Iceland from Norway more than 1000 years ago. There you can taste the pure Icelandic water which comes directly from Esjan.
Finally, you’ll take a long soak in a fresh, clean pool in Mosfellsbær to relax any tired muscles. This is a popular activity for locals and other travellers alike, so feel free to strike up a conversation with those around you! After you return to the city, the rest of the evening is yours to explore the restaurants and cafés, take in a show, or simply wander the streets admiring what you see.
Don’t miss this easy afternoon full of gorgeous views, warm water and Icelandic charm! Check the booking availability by pressing “Choose a date” above.
