Highly recommended

The tour was great, the day was great and the guide was very friendly and helpful. It is not recommended on a rainy day. We had a sunny day, we were able to bathe in the springs. We were not wearing a towel, as I did not indicate it in the information, but Oliver the guide was kind and had one to spare. We weren't very convinced to bathe, because we were afraid of being cold when we left, but none of that, the heat in the bathroom lasted long enough to dry and get dressed without noticing the zero degrees of room temperature.

Beautiful, must do adventure

I thoroughly enjoyed this hike and the service was very good. Pick up and drop off from where I was staying which was convenient. The only thing they could’ve offered were hiking shoes (they’re a heavy item to travel with on holidays), but other than that the tour guide was informative, helpful and relaxed. The bath at the end was amazing and such a reward for the tiring hike, however many people arrived shortly after us and it became very crowded. It’s worth getting up early or going later to avoid the rush. Would do again!

Despite soupy fog - it was a great experience

Okay so we missed out on the views, too bad because it is supposed to be spectacular. Even so the hike was great, our guide very friendly and informative, and the hot springs were great. Despite the weather conditions we enjoyed the hike tremendously and would easily do it again.
