Itinerary:

Enjoy nature upclose, meet the locals, and relax in geothermal hot springs. Hveragerði village holds its charm in all seasons. The white nights of summer are filled with migratory birdsong, whilst the dark winter skies are brightened by the magnificence of the northern lights. Hveragerði has a peaceful small town feel and is easily explored on foot. That’s the real beauty of the location. Icelanders term it as ‘upp í sveit’ or ‘out in the country’. It’s somewhere you go to relax, de stress, and get away from the daily grind - to recharge amidst magnificent, natural surroundings.

We’ve gotten reviews from clients that some prefer to stay in towns rather than in Reykjavík so they can be closer to nature and northern lights.  Also, some clients don’t like the increased traffic and noise in Reykjavík and that they are only meeting other travellers, not Icelanders.  This trip is a fantastic alternative, and Hveragerði is a lively and pretty town  close to Reykjavík that has long been a weekend getaway resort for Icelandic artists and Icelanders interested in wellness.  

 

 

Day 1  : Airport transfer to Hveragerði and Welcome Walk

Guided transfer will depart from Keflavík Airport to Hveragerði at 08:00 and 17:30. Duration about 90 minutes.

You will be dropped off at your hotel, where you have the day open for your own activities. Overnight in Hveragerði for the next 4 nights.

In case flights land late, and guests miss their connection to Hveragerði upon arrival, Iceland Travel will refund the transfers. However we cannot be held responsible for any extra cost that might occur. Other options of transfer include.

Welcome Walk: In the evening, a local guide will meet you at Hotel Örk at 20:30 for a welcome walk. You will get to know the charming town, its history, geology and culture from a local perspective. It’s an easy walk, seeing the new hot spring area that was formed in a big earthquake in 2008, and even see how to boil an egg in one of them. Also you will get a better understanding of how people use the hot springs water for heating up greenhouses, growing vegetables, and last but not least what it feels like to live with a hot spring in the back yard.
