Hot Spring Mountain Circle Hike Tour From Hveragerdi

Hveragerdi town on Iceland´s south coast is located right in the middle of a highly active volcanic area. It´s literally sitting on a bubbling cauldron of geothermal activity fuelled by magma pushing upwards towards the earth´s surface. That explains the plumes of steam rising from the ground here and there on the surrounding mountainsides.

On this tour we drive a short distance out of town and hike the scenic trail into Reykjadalur or “Steam Valley”. As we explore this geothermal wonderland we see there´s a lot of beauty packed into this short hike. The highpoint of the trip of course is to bathe in a natural hot spring. As you relax, drink in the stunning natural winter beauty of your surroundings.

This tour is ideal for those wanting to experience Iceland´s unique geology and take the road less travelled.

testimonials
Northern Lights and Whale Watching Tour - the most exciting experience My impressions after this amazing tour are the best possible. The point is that on this tour neither northern lights nor whales can be guaranteed. However, we were fantastically fortunate to see both on our tour. The scenery is unbelievable. Besides, the guide provided a lot of information - how the northern lights happen, and about the local whale types, feeding peculiarities and a lot of other. All in all, everything was as promised by the tour company Nordic Saga Tours with which we booked this tour. We will contact them again before our next tour. Alan T, Austria
