Did this hike in mid March. We were the first car in the parking lot ~7AM. The first 2-ish miles have a decent amount of elevation gain. Unfortunately there was some dense fog in spots so we couldn't enjoy the views as much as we would have liked. The thermal river is really interesting. It was in the low 30's F when we were there, so we did our best to submerge our bodies entirely. It's almost more of a stream than a river (at least by my American standards). Getting out was definitely the worst part. Having to dry off and change while it was snowing was an interesting experience. 2 other couples came while we were in the water, and saw several more people hiking up on our way down. Get there early if you want some privacy.

Beautiful! It can get a little slippery on certain parts but there was usually enough gravel to mix with the snow and ice that it wasn’t too bad. Very well marked hike but would recommend good hiking boots! I’d also recommend continuing past the hot springs for just a little bit. My husband and I were able to see a beautiful waterfall a little further down that we wouldn’t have even known was there!

This waterfall is great! Looks like something from another planet.

Great scenery and some interesting Icelandic history to learn about along the way, but very crowded and the waterfall is underwhelming compared to others in Iceland.

well paved trail and beautiful scenery nice easy hike

This is a great trail, lots of thermal activity to see. The hot spring river is nice to soak in, there are 2 sided chest high platforms to change up but your sure to show a little cheek. The end is not as warm as Id have liked so go further up if ypu want warmer. tThe elevation gain is pretty serious the first 1.1km or so of about 330m. def worth the effort and time. leave yourself at least 3 to 4 hrs to hike and soak and take photos.

It was a decent view, pretty crowded but that's to be expected. Definitely a good spot to bring the family if you want to go for a little hike but not spend too much energy on it.

Pretty hike with a soothing payoff at the end. As of this review the address within AllTrails is incorrect...the trailhead is located next to the Hot River Cafe!

We hiked this in July of 2017. The trail is not 11 miles, maybe 4 round trip (assuming you stop at the hot river - you can certainly hike on). Was a neat trail with lots of geothermal activity along the way. 3 star rating is due to the crowds...definitely the most crowded hike we did in Iceland!

Its difficult to not give this 5 stars yet when I compare this to some of the other breath taking falls here in Iceland I must say that this one is not as spectacular as Skogafoss. The trail is easy but not strollerable, have alot of storge space available on your camera or phone because I took probably 50 pics here. Well around the whole Thingvellir National park area anyways.

Quick little walk to the awesome waterfall. Worth stopping and checking it out.

Easy but pretty hike. A bit of a different experience from my usual New England hikes.
