Discover the breathtaking natural beauty of the second-highest waterfall in Iceland on a full-day hiking trip from Reykjavík. Hike through stunning, dramatic canyons and absorb the magnificent views.
One of our awesome guides will pick you up at your hotel or closest bus stops(see bus stops here)and set off from Reykjavik and head out to Hvalfjordur, a drive that takes around an hour or a little less so there is plenty of time to ask your local guide anything you may be wondering about this small and mysterious nation, and the hipsters that inhabit it. HÚH! (Viking clap) When we get to the foothills we tie our shoes and make our way up the mountain and the hike itself takes around an hour and a half. On top of the Glymur waterfall itself, a short rest will be taken to have packed lunch and enjoy the view over Whale Fjord.
After the hike, you will head to Iceland’s largest hot spring where we have built luxury bathing facilities. Iceland is so rich in geothermal hot water and Icelanders have been using it for centuries to bathe and regenerate sore muscles, which you will definitely feel on your legs and feet after the hike. After the bath, you will feel reborn and your guide will take you back to your hotel and with a 100 percent battery charge in your body, you are sure to grab Reykjavik´s famous nightlife by the throat.
But, this is not over yet. After soaking in Krauma, you will visit a horse farm where they have a geothermal bakery. Try their geothermal baked rye bread with butter or something else.
