The hot springs in Reykjadalur, South Iceland, are among some of the more accessible hot springs in five countries in an article on guardian.co.uk. “Think Iceland and an image of people drifting dreamily in the Blue Lagoon spa comes to mind. But the country, which sits upon a hotbed of volcanic activity, has no shortage of smaller hot springs and pools you can visit without having to pay an entry fee,” the article points out.

Reykjadalur or ‘Steam Valley’ is a one hour hike from the town of Hveragerði.
The other hot springs to make the list are Travertine and Hot Creek in the U.S., and Halfway and Lussier in Canada and Hot Water Beach, New Zealand.
