Witness Iceland’s Natural Highlights, Glaciers & Hot Springs

We combine two of Iceland’s natural highlights, hot springs and glaciers, for a day full of traversing remarkable landscapes. This all-day tour starts at Hengill geothermal area, located at the foot of an old volcanic cone. There, you will take an easy hike past a series of beautiful hot springs to Reykjadalur valley. In this steamy valley, you have the opportunity to enjoy a bath in a natural warm stream and we highly recommend that you can a relaxing dip. Next, we stop to admire the impressive waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, and drive past the Eyjafjallajökull volcano to the wonders of the Sólheimajökull glacier. To top off the amazing day, we go on a short and easy Glacier Walk on Sólheimajökull glacier. There, you will discover ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses. Enjoy this day of adventure that offers magnificent nature, scenery and exciting activities!

Customer Reviews

Rob and I booked the walk through ice and fire. We had a fantastic time. The walks weren't too strenuous, yet just about the right length to see amazing landscapes and learn about hot springs and glacier movements. Our guide, Gìsli, was knowledgeable, friendly and patient. We learned a lot from him about the nature phenomenons in Iceland and the locations we visited in particular. Would do the tour again, in an instant.
