Iceland: Hike through the wilderness to a recently opened geothermal pool

Follow a short path through the surreal Icelandic landscape to enjoy a soak in the remote Húsafell Canyon Baths, fed from the Giljaböð Hot Springs. Relax in the soothing waters while taking in the spectacular views of the surrounding canyon and glaciers. If you go at night, gaze up and see if you can spot the Northern Lights. This relatively unknown spot only opened recently, with the entire structure being as sustainable and true to the area’s heritage as possible.
