The Environment Agency of Iceland has reopened Reykjadalur valley, RÚV reports. Visitors are asked to walk only on paths to avoid further damage in the area.
The valley, located in South Iceland, is popular among tourists and locals for its natural beauty and hot springs. It was closed in early April in order to protect the vegetation and landscape around the walking path.
