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.

Difficulty:
3 out of 5 - this tour can be more challenging if there´s a lot of snow on the mountain.

What to bring:
Swimsuit, towel and warm clothing

Guided hike tour
Pick-up and drop-off at accommodation in Hveragerdi

Bobby, Just checking in from our trip to Iceland last month. We had an amazing time and definitely think we chose one of the best tours for us. I'd highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to get away for just a short while without having to dedicate their time to a week long tour, because even though the trip wasn't very long, I still felt like we got to see a lot and I'm pretty happy about that. The scenery and nature in this country is unreal, and definitely something you need to see up close to fully understand. I enjoyed Reykjavik a lot and I'm thankful that the weather was so clear. I was able to get a lot of great photos. My wife enjoyed browsing the many shops lining the streets in the city and we left with tons of gifts for family and friends. Everyone was really helpful on this tour and all the places we visited seemed to really appreciate tourists. Thanks again for making this Iceland trip so much fun. Barry and Gladys Martens
