Hiking with or without a guide us always a popular mode of travel and many
hiking trails exist.

Smiðjuloftið
Smiðjuloftið is an activity center in Akranes, a wonderfully typical town right across the bay from the capital of Reykjavik. At Smiðjuloftið you will find a climbing gym with walls up to eight meters high. We also have a bright and cozy loft with spectacular views, a small stage, and activities for families and groups.   During the summertime we only accommodate groups at Smiðjuloftið and we can offer a wide variety of activities for your group; live Icelandic music performed by local musicians, fun and games, climbing on top-rope or bouldering, mini-zipline etc. Groups are welcome to bring their own snacks and dine at the loft.  We also offer short, guided climbing tours to our local climbing spot, for minimum two participants. There you can choose between easy routes for the beginner/novice climber, or something a bit more challenging if you dare, or even abseil beside one of the beautiful waterfalls in Mt. Akrafjall.   
Husafell Canyon Baths
Led by a knowledgeable local guide in English, this year-round tour begins with a short ride from the Hotel Húsafell 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 to Ok jökull, Iceland’s first glacier claimed by climate change. The highlight of our excursion is a serene soak in the recently completed Húsafell Canyon Baths, a surreal hot spring paradise that must 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.  While the tour is not technically demanding, it does require the participant to walk un-aided over uneven terrain as well as down 64 steps to the canyon floor to reach the baths.  Please contact for tours and booking information.
The Cave
Hailed as the mightiest of Iceland's caves, its diversity and grandeur is unrivalled. This makes for an experience not to be forgotten. Just shy of 1600 meters / 5250ft, the cave features amazing colours and lava formations that lurk in the depths of the earth. We offer a family friendly tour that all generations can enjoy, thanks to our all new signature walkway and feature lighting. For those who desire more physical activity we offer a half day tour to the caves end.  Caves are often dark, tight and uninviting places; how ever this is not the case in Víðgelmir lava cave. What used to be slow traveled rugged terrain is now easy and enjoyable. Leading from one great hall to the next our path is lit slightly flowing through this magical underworld.
