Hveragerdi Hot Spring River Trail Reykjadalur

Hveragerdi Hot Spring River (Iceland)

Iceland has become a rather popular destination, in part because Iceland Air and Wow Air have made it inexpensive to get there. The airport isn’t that large so flights are round the clock.

My flight arrived at midnight. I picked up a rental car and drove an hour and a half to the Reykjadalur trailhead. By this time (2 a.m.) I was pretty tired so I slept until 4:30 in the car. It was beginning to get light, and I wanted to get to the hot spring river before the crowds arrived, so I set off on the hike. I arrived for my 100-degree morning bath (pictured above) when no one else was there. A perfect way to start my first morning back in Iceland! I didn’t see a single person the entire time.

The other reason to arrive early (besides avoiding the masses) is to avoid the bugs. There were no bugs on my way to the hot springs, but the bugs were waking up (with the higher temperatures) on my descent back to my car.
