About the tour

The Canyon Baths

The Húsafell locals who undertook the Canyon Baths project went to great lengths to keep the entire structure as environmentally unobtrusive, sustainable, and true to the area’s heritage as possible. Choose from different geothermal pools of varying temperatures, 30-41°C (86-105°F),  with a spectacular view of the surrounding canyon, mountains, and glaciers.

An authentic Icelandic soak

Constructed from locally sourced, natural materials like flagstone from the canyon floor, the baths are hot-spring-fed pools designed to blend into the environment seamlessly using the age-old methods that created Snorralaug, a heritage site pool dating back to the 10th century. The on-site bathhouse is made from salvaged timbers from the area. Even the hooks in the changing room are repurposed horseshoes from a nearby family farm.

The tour to the baths

Led by a knowledgeable local guide in English, this year-round tour begins with a short ride from the Húsafell Activity Centre to the trailhead in the remote Icelandic Highlands. On this 2-hour tour, we enjoy a relaxed walk among natural wonders not found in many guidebooks, including the spectacular two-tiered waterfall Langifoss. We’ll also learn about Iceland’s renewable energy practices, cross an icy stream of glacial meltwater, and see the site of Okjökull, Iceland’s first glacier claimed by climate change. Note that the route can change due to unforeseen weather circumstances such as snow, ice, mud, or water.

The highlight of our excursion is a serene soak in the Húsafell Canyon Baths, a surreal hot spring paradise that has to be seen to be believed. Enjoy half an hour of relaxing, recharging, and breathing in the pure Icelandic air before heading back to Hotel Húsafell.
