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!

Susie, Thanks for all of your help in planning our tour to Iceland over New Years. We were a bit hesitant about it because this meant we would not be with our friends to celebrate the new year but we knew that this would be an interesting experience so we decided to go for it and I'm glad we did. We had such a nice time in Reykjavik and couldn't have asked for a better fireworks show. We really enjoyed the golden circle a couple of days before as well as the four course dinner and bonfires. The Christmas lights tour was also stunning. Everything was beautiful and the locals were so welcoming. The day after new years we went to the Blue Lagoon and I absolutely loved it. Iceland is a truly unique place and I can't wait to experience it again someday. Maybe when we have kids I'll give you a call and we can plan another trip to Iceland! That's a few years off of course, but I already know I want my future kids to experience the magic we felt while we were there. :) Thanks again, Krysta White
