The ultimate Icelandic experience. An immersive family friendly tour that will take you on a short hike through stunning landscape, while exploring and learning how Icelanders have managed to survive throughout the ages in this cold and seemingly hostile country.
Few things are more Icelandic than soaking in a natural hot spring deep inside the highlands in all kinds of weather. On this tour you will visit a little hot pool tucked away in a hidden ravine and literally dip your toes into the essence of being Icelandic through our ritual of hot and cold foot baths!
Our knowledgeable guide will share stories and songs of survival and explain how Icelanders adapted to the most challenging of conditions. You will also have the opportunity to taste the very local fire water liquor and snack on food that has been preserved to last the harsh winter.
After we have dried our feet, we'll wind our way back through the ravine and return not only refreshed but with a newfound appreciation for the incredible resilience of the Icelandic people.
What to bring
Warm clothes and socks, wind- and waterproof jacket, sturdy boots, gloves, buff, hat, sunglasses, and a water bottle.
