Reykjadalur, Smoke Valley (Selfoss)

Selfoss, near the town of Hveragerdi.

Reykjadalur, or "Smoke Valley", is a beautiful, colourful, almost undiscovered valley with high-temperature geothermal activities, not very far from Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. It is an absolute unspoiled pearl in Iceland's nature, where hot water flows down the slopes of Mount Hellisheidi and makes an ideal place to bathe in a virgin natural lagoon.

Reykjadalur is a valley above the town Hveragerdi and a 90 minute long marked hiking trail leads up the green valley to the warm river Reykjadalsa in Klambragil. The trail begins at the mouth of Reykjadalur valley, where there is a great view of the Djupagil gorge and its inspiring waterfall. The trail then leads up Reykjadalur and across a lukewarm but shallow river, where wading is required. A bit further up you will reach Klambragil, a ravine where hot streams flow into the Reykjadalsa River, creating an ideal temperature for a relaxed bath, including some natural jacuzzis. Note that the hot streams themselves are too hot for bathing. There are numerous onward hiking possibilities from Klambragil and there is an amazing gorge nearby with several hot springs and a beautiful little waterfall at the very end.
