Hot River Bath in the Reykjadalur Valley

Yasuko, Lia, Luca and I decided to go for a walk up to a small river with hot water. That was fun. We started from the outskirts of Hveragerði and walked for about 1.5 hours to a place where a 45°C warm river meets his little brother carrying 10° cold water. Depending on the precise spot you sit, you have exactly the temperature you like. It’s a popular weekend outing close to Reykjavik which attracts quite some people. While walking up, we came across a boiling water source with a little warning sign saying „Danger, Achtung, 100°C“. All around, a steamy landscape. What a scene. We spent 2 hours up bathing and pick-nicking and walked back in the rain. A small adventure we all will remember. The kids loved it. Yasuko felt at home 🙂
