Tour Details

Hot Spring Husafell Canyon Baths

Luxurious hot spring bathing in a spectacular canyon hidden in the remote Icelandic Highlands.

Húsafell, Waterfalls and Icelandic Hot Springs

You begin the tour by bus from BSÍ Bus Terminal and drive to the lush Húsafell area with stops at Europe’s most powerful hot spring Deildartunguhver and the beautiful Hraunfossar lava waterfalls. After a lunch break in Húsafell, we head to the hot spring canyon baths which are called Giljaböð in Icelandic.

Giljaböð – Húsafell Canyon Baths

Escape the ordinary on an enchanting wilderness and waterfall walk through the Icelandic Highlands to a hidden hot spring framed by a magnificent volcanic canyon. Located on the edge of the Icelandic highlands in West Iceland, Húsafell Canyon Baths offer a completely natural and authentic bathing experience in extraordinary surroundings.

These natural baths in the wildest of settings come with brand-new walkways and facilities with a rustic feel. Choose from three geothermal pools of varying temperatures, each with a spectacular view of the surrounding canyon, mountains, and glaciers.

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. The on-site bathhouse is made from salvaged timbers from the area. Even the hooks in the changing room are re-purposed horseshoes from a nearby family farm.

Húsafell Hiking Trail

Led by a local Húsafell guide, your journey begins with a short ride to a hiking trail in the remote Icelandic Highlands. On this tour, we enjoy a peaceful walk around rare nature sites not found in any guidebooks including the spectacular two-tiered Langifoss waterfall. We have got a beautiful combo tour .

The highlight of our excursion is a heavenly dip in the new Húsafell Canyon Baths, a surreal hot spring paradise that has to be seen to be believed. Enjoy half an hour relaxing, recharging and breathing in pure Icelandic air before returning back to our departure point.

This short but packed tour is perfect to experience Iceland like the locals, head to a natural hot spring and have a drink at Hotel Húsafell afterwards.
