We will rise and shine in early in the morning, and drive out of Reykjavik when the other tourists are still fast asleep. As soon as we are out of town you will see lava fields unfold and grand mountains rising in the horizon – all shaped by powerful forces of nature.

We start the hike on the top of Hengill volcano 800 m above sea level. This is one of the largest and most powerful geothermal areas on Earth, but don’t worry this volcano has not erupted for 2000 years. As soon as we head out you’ll see clouds of mysterious steam coming up from the boiling hot mud pots. Soon you will find yourself in another world also known as Reykjadalur or simply: Steamy Valley.

We hike downhill into the ancient, steamy crater and the green luscious valley with a hot river running through it. Here we will find a good spot to cleanse our bodies and minds in the warm geothermal water coming directly from within the core of Mother Nature. Our guide will take us through a water meditation and breathing exercises. Don’t worry if you have never tried to meditate – this will all be at an easy beginner’s level. You will also have the possibility of finding your own meditation spot if you wish. What’s important is that you get a moment to just be you, become one with the element and let the pure water relax your soul.

Recharged and refreshed we continue the hike downhill enjoying being in the pure nature, feeling every footstep and being present in the now. On the way we will be passing more steam, grazing sheep, stunning scenery, and a beautiful hot waterfall.

On our return to Reykjavik we will listen to some relaxing Icelandic music. And enjoy feeling a little bit high on life and on Icelandic nature. Our calm minds will be loaded with beautiful scenery and powerful forces of nature ready to face civilization again.

You are not alone: As Iceland has become a major hotspot destination you must expect other tourists around you. On every tour we will aim to get away from the masses, but there will be busy stops too. Instead of being annoyed about it we try to see the beauty in people coming to admire our pure nature…rather than just another resort with a shopping mall and a theme park.
