Geothermal power is a fantastic natural resource in Iceland. As a matter of fact Iceland has been a leading country in terms of maximizing the utilization of that power in various ways, like in heating houses, farming, generating electricity and not least heating the swimming pools for a better public health.

Itinerary and practical info:

In a one day journey we travel to the source, in time and space, to find out how it came about that we started this evolution almost just few decades ago and we will look at the spot where the hot water comes from and those who chose to do so can take a bath. 

After we have picked you up in Reykjavik, between 9 and 10, we start our trip at 10 am in the Pearl, the spacecraft shaped building on the top of the hot-water tanks. From there we follow the water backward, with various stops, all the way to the mountains; Hengill and the power plant at Hellisheiði (Cave heath). We hike from the heath down to the smoky canyons, take photos (gorgeous colours) and take a bathe in the river. After good preparation of our skin and muscles we ether hike further down the valley to the town Hveragerði where we will be picked up or we go back to our car up on the heath. It will depend on weather and road conditions and size of the group. - Back in town at 4 pm.

Your outfit: Warm clothing and walking boots, cap and gloves, bathing suit and towel.

A fun afternoon variation:

Start the tour at noon and get the dark, the stars and the northern lights if they show up. - Back at 7 pm.

Plan B: We take to Krisuvik from Hellisheiði for shorter walk if weather is too harsh.
