Relaxing in the Reykjadalur river

Relaxing in the Reykjadalur river

Relaxing after a long day?  The reykjadalur river is the ideal spot. (Photo by: amanderson2)

When you arrive in Hveragerði, drive through the town and  go 3 km to the Breidamork. Stop at the parking lot where the trail starts to Reykjadalur. 

In the valley around the Reykjadalur warm-water river, you can find a variety of hot tubs and geothermal springs. From the car park, it’s a tough hike (you should be in pretty decent shape) of about 45 minutes to the warm-water river. Follow the wooden arrows on the walkway. Along the way you’ll pass steaming and bubbling mud pools and sulphur-smelling springs. Highly recommended!

Do not forget your swimming attire (wear it beforehand?) and towel, and you can bring a plastic bag to carry your wet swimwear after your bath.

  • Special places we would have missed otherwise ... We have just returned from a 16-day Iceland tour. The travel book was very helpful, we had downloaded and printed. The PDF travel guide helped us to find nice places. Very organized itinerary with a road map which listed all sites. TOP!
