Lava Caving, Super Jeep & Bathing In Geothermal Springs From Hveragerdi
This is an amazing super-value tour of exciting and unique activities. The perfect choice to experience some of the best outdoor activities Iceland has to offer. In just one day you pack in such adventures as caving, riding across rugged terrain in a super jeep and bathing in a natural hot spring.
The tour kicks off in the picturesque town of Hveragerdi on Iceland´s south coast. First we descend into one of the caves in the locality. As we go deeper into the earth´s belly and marvel at the spectacular formations, we learn about the geology of the area and how Icelanders have found ingenious ways to harness the geothermal energy bubbling beneath their feet. Lunch is in the cave and we enjoy a selection of traditional Icelandic foods. After all, what a people eat is another window on their culture. Here in this eerie netherworld, your guide will entertain you with hair-raising tales of the trolls and outlaws who once called these caves home.
Back above ground it´s time to get the adrenaline pumping as we hop aboard a super jeep and ride across the rugged lava landscape in the shadow of the local active volcano, Hengill. We use one of the hot springs or the ground´s natural heat to cook our dinner or lunch.
The icing on the cake has to be the awesome Zen-like experience of bathing in a natural hot spring. This is literally where you become one with your natural surroundings.
