Snow Shoeing & Hiking Adventure From Hveragerdi

Winter in Iceland is a wonderland. But imagine having this magical experience while hiking across one of the country´s most actively volcanic areas. Doing so means you get to see the amazing contrasts as steam billows from geothermal vents here and there in the snowy wasteland. This is the adventure that awaits you in the vicinity of Hveragerdi town on Iceland´s south coast.

On this tour we snow shoe across a snow-covered lava field in the shadow of the active volcano Hengill. Here is scenery guaranteed to take your breath away. Our knowledgeable guide will select the area having the best conditions for snow shoeing and on the way we stop at a scenic location for a hot refreshment. Your guide will also fill you in on the unique geology of the area and how the locals ingeniously harness the energy that´s literally bubbling beneath their feet.

And the beauty of it all is that you´re off the beaten track in pristine nature – the perfect therapy for soul and body!

4-6 hours, including 1,5-2,5 hours of snow shoeing and 1-2 hours hiking

Dear Dora, We are back from our Scandinavian tour and didn't have any problems, neither in Scandinavia or in Russia. We enjoyed this vacation quite a lot. What made it so very special was the private tours that you arranged for us. It gave us quite an insight into the everyday life of people in Russia and Scandinavia. Maria in St. Petersburg was a jewel and her knowledge of Russian art is amazing. Time just flew when we were with her. She is quite a lady. Olga in Moscow was also very nice and friendly. We were also quite impressed by Alexander, the guide in Oslo. He is a great with the patience of a saint. The only negative from our trip was the traffic jams, especially in St. Petersburg. I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how grateful we are for your planning on our behalf. We will recommend Russia and Scandinavia trips and your handling of our trip to everyone we know. Thank you again. Bob and Morena Smith
