This day tour starts at Hengill geothermal area, located at the foot of an old volcanic cone. From there you will take an easy hike past a series of beautiful hot springs, to Reykjadalur valley where you can enjoy a nature bath in a beautiful warm stream. Next we head towards the two waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, taking you right past the Eyjafjallajokull volcano – the infamous one which erupted in 2010, putting a stop to all air traffic in Europe. Then we are on to the wonders of Solheimajokull glacier where a short and easy glacier walk between ice sculptures, ridges, and deep crevasses will complete your day. A tour that offers both magnificent nature and beautiful scenery!
Depending on accessibility to Reykjadalur over the coldest winter months, a visit to the hot springs of Graendalur Valley is equally beautiful, but without the bath.
