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!
