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.

Swimsuit, towel and warm clothing

testimonials
Dora, Hi! Thank you for making our tour of Iceland everything I had hoped for and more. Your communication with me through the entire process was incredible, so thank you for all of your speedy replies! It's nice to know there are companies out there who don't just strictly operate from 9-5. You helped me in the early morning and late at night some days, so that alone made this trip worthwhile and I'm glad we decided to go with you. As for the tour - WOW! Iceland truly is a beautiful place and we got to see a lot of variety on this tour. I was expecting it to be gorgeous, but was truly amazed to see everything I was able to see up close and personal. Everything just always looks so different in photos! I'll be recommending Nordic Saga Tours to friends who wish to visit Iceland in the future, and if I plan to do more traveling, you will hear from me. Thanks again, Katie (and Andrew) Schwartz
