This is a full day walking tour combining hot springs and a glacier. A must for nature enthusiasts.

This is a tour that combines two of Iceland's natural highlights, hot springs and glaciers. It is only a 45 min. drive from Reykjavík to the edge of the Hengill geothermal area with a 2 - 3 hour walk.

Located at the foot of the old volcanic cone of Hengill, this hiking trail passes a series of beautiful hot springs en route to the Reykjadalur valley where one can enjoy a bath in a beautiful warm stream. Continue in car for an hour and 45 minutes towards the great Mýrdalsjökull glacier, one of the largest in Iceland. Here we put on crampons and grab ice axes and set out to discover a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and the deep crevasses which hide the intense blue colour of the glacier ice.
