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

Alex, Wonderful time in Iceland. Thanks for your help in picking out the perfect Iceland tour for us. It was greatly appreciated. I'm incredibly happy with how it all turned out! I can't believe how much ground we covered in just a week. Almost hard to believe. I'm so happy the buses were comfortable and even had wi-fi on board. I was worried about that! We really loved the sights, such as the waterfalls, glaciers, volcanoes, baths, and geysers. Iceland is a unique place for sure and now I totally understand why it has this mystical and mysterious reputation. I loved learning about the history from the knowledgable guides we were lucky enough to have! The food was different but really fresh and interesting. I'm always up for trying new things when I travel! Thanks for your help, our tour of Iceland was really special. JR Reedings
