This hike was absolutely amazing with some of the most amazing views! Definitely worth it in my eyes. The hot spring was far better than a crowded blue lagoon. One of the highlights of my trip.

This is by far my favorite hot spring tour out off all the hot springs I visited in Iceland. The hike took about 40 minutes or even longer for me because my friend and I kept stopping to take photos and videos. Our guide Henrik was great, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

There was an extra cold chill the time I went, so we didn't end up hiking but the guide was extremely nice and took us to some lesser known hot springs and a little tour of the golden circle. There were only 6 people in the group so that was nice!

The scenery was beautiful, but the hike was not leisurely and we would have liked more time to take pictures. Still, I would recommend this tour for young, fit people who don't mind a lot of uphill hiliking.

The day was sunny and beautiful. The hike up wasn't terrible, but I do walk 7 miles a day. I know an older couple that was with us was not able to make it all the way to the hot springs and had to turn around early. But it was their choice. And they just went and sat at the little cafe down the mountain! But the scenery was gorgeous. Beautiful! Must see! Plenty of time at the springs. Only negative was the bugs flying around your face, but once you get used to them no other cons. Either come with your swimsuit on or be comfortable to change in front of everyone as there is no rooms to change into once you get to the springs. Beautiful and wonderful excursion and I highly highly recommend!!! Mike was an amazing tour guide. Funny and very knowledgable!

This is an amazing trip through a breathtaking landscape. The first 1,5 km are uphill and quite steep, but with a normal condition there should be no problem and you are rewarded by the views. We, 72 and 73 years old, could do it without any problem. Our guide Finn was very helpful. One of our group 30 was completely untrained but Finn en ouraged her not to give up. After about 1,5 hour we reached the Hidden Valley and we went into the hot river. Everybody changes clothes in the open air, no need to be shy about that, but don't forget to take a plastic bag to put your clothes in, because when it is raining everything gets wet through. People should be warned about that. The only point of critisism. We were lucky, because the rain started when we left.

The guide was really helpful and patient, especially since the hike was more difficult for me than I anticipated, and let me borrow some trekking poles. The hot spring area is really beautiful and there is a waterfall on the way to them. I thoroughly enjoyed the hike.
