This was really it - even though you have to walk quite a lot, in the end you get the reward. The geotermal river offers many places to just lie down in the hot water. But do not pass the stop sign - the water there is extremely hot, you might ge burned (we almost did :)

During a glacier walk, we discussed with the local guide where to go best to enjoy hot springs. We had heard of Blue Lagoon, but also about how busy and costly that is. He advised to goto Reykjadalur Hot Springs. Preferably in the morning as many Icelanders go in the afternoon. And we did, and found it was not very busy, it was free, took a serious 1-hour walk up the mountain to reach the place. And it was worth it: lying relaxed in a warm, streaming river (in our case including sunshine) and we fully enjoyed it! A recommendable place to go

This trek was one of the highlights of our 2 week trip in Iceland! We stayed at nearby Hotel Örk, but happy we drove to the starting point of the trek. Only 3-4 cars at the car park, when we arrived there. Also you can do the trek in sneakers or sandals, but it's better, if you have real hiking shoes/boots, since some parts are steep and have loose pebbles. The route is easy to follow - took us about 1 h 20 min until we reached the "pools" and it was a fantastic "reward" changing and soaking for an hour in the nice hot water enjoying the view - we were very lucky with the weather and had blasting sun. There are no changing rooms - only "partitions" - people will be able to see you, when you change. When we arrived there were only about 10 others at the pools, so it was easy to find a spot to change and store our clothes - as we left lots of people arrived, so I guess it got very hard by the end. We started the hike around 9 am, as we walked down, we saw maybe 70 others going up and the car park was over flowing when we reached it.

Nice walk, long but not difficult if you have the right shoes. Tha path it's easy, the end of the valley hosts open air thermal springs, free to use. If the weather is good the views of the valley are commanding.

Aah! to feel that warm water against the body after the long, beautiful walk up the mountain was worth all the struggle. Be aware that there's poor changing facilities, so a bit of audacity is required. Our trip started in the morning. On our way down in early afternoon we were disturbed by a lot of annoying mosquitoes.
