This hike was absolutely amazing with some of the most amazing views! Definitely worth it in my eyes. The hot spring was far better than a crowded blue lagoon. One of the highlights of my trip.

This is by far my favorite hot spring tour out off all the hot springs I visited in Iceland. The hike took about 40 minutes or even longer for me because my friend and I kept stopping to take photos and videos. Our guide Henrik was great, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

There was an extra cold chill the time I went, so we didn't end up hiking but the guide was extremely nice and took us to some lesser known hot springs and a little tour of the golden circle. There were only 6 people in the group so that was nice!

I loved this trip. It was a wonderful hike through beautiful landscape to the ideal hot springs. Theses springs are as natural as their surroundings. This is a good option for anyone who wants to get themselves out into some Icelandic scenery.

The guide was really helpful and patient, especially since the hike was more difficult for me than I anticipated, and let me borrow some trekking poles. The hot spring area is really beautiful and there is a waterfall on the way to them. I thoroughly enjoyed the hike.

This tour was amazing. We lucked out with the weather as well. Parts of the path were a little muddy due to a previous days rain and some parts are narrow. The hike is a solid 4 km each direction. It is not strenuous but if one is concerned about their steadiness on their feet it is probably not for you. Hiking boots and not shoes are best. Our guide Woi was lovely and very accommodating.

Excellent. Beautiful country. Spectacular views. Wal the guide was informative and entertaining. The hike was not at all strenuous and the thermal wading in the streams was relaxing and unique.
