Reviewed January 9, 2013

You go through the Valley of Desolation on the way to the Boiling Lake. I've seen larger "desolation" in Iceland, but this one is OK if you haven't seen anything volcanic in your life.

“Spectacular!!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

This area of our Boiling Lake hike was worth the effort! The view was out of this world. A must see but take a guide if you want to enjoy it completely.

“Boiling Lake hike is worth it just for this”
Reviewed February 12, 2003

If you tried the hike to the Boiling Lake and got only this far, it would be worth it. Fascinating in that this lush rainforest peters out completely in this valley and gives way to its volcanic nature.
