Great experience!!! But it was icy and I slipped several times. The contrast between the snow and the heat of the hot springs was amazing

Dangerous hike even by dry ts, the stones are extremely slippery on the end, do not venture beyond the 2 rocks, narrow path. You can go to the point of view or the beginning of the descent, superb panorama :)

Heartbreaking to see the effects of global warming up close.

I would classify this as moderate rather than easy. there are some minor exposed areas where it's important to keep your balance. also, it is rather strenuous hiking uphill at the incline of this mountain. it wasn't so difficult that a person of decent health shouldn't be able to do it, but still not easy. it was absolutely beautiful and one of my favorite hikes. the bugs in July were really bad. take something to cover your mouth and nose and eyes such as a bandana and sunglasses.

Nice little climb to great rewards at the end! Waterfalls and geysers along the way. We went on Oct 14 just before a rain and wind storm was going to move in. It was cool and exhilarating. After getting out of the hot springs we dried off pretty quickly with the wind. Brrrrr!

Nice easy trail. Free parking and a great view of glacier and lagoon with icebergs.

Amazing trail! Would be dangerous in snow/very icy conditions, a few parts were slick. We went Oct 29 with cloudy weather but no wind or rain, but there were still a few icy patches we had to be careful on. Also I don’t recommend this trail if it’s extremely windy. The hot spring is so worth it at the end, I recommend going further up the stream it’s much hotter. Such a fun time! Would be a perfect midnight summer sun hike

Beautiful. Crowded, but there is also a Geyser nearby that’s awesome too. So two birds, one stone.

Very steep uphill to the waterfall for about 2km so be prepared for that.

wow! view, glaciers, etc

A beautiful trail to the first swimming pool in Iceland. Definitely worth the hike if not only for the view. I would say it’s accessible for most skill levels, but not necessarily depending on sure footedness.
