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.

Swimsuit, towel and warm clothing

testimonials
Susie, Wow!!! We're home from our iceland trip and couldn't be happier. It has been interesting getting back into the swing of things here in New York, but we're managing. :) We miss Iceland already. The South Shore tour you recommended for us was everything we hoped for. The scenery in the country is unlike anything I had ever seen before and I've had a lot of fun going through my pictures since we've been home. One of my personal favorite memories would have to be visiting the hot springs and geysers. The colors were gorgeous! I think the tour was well organized and packed full of really fun and interesting activies that I think anyone would enjoy. Thanks again for all of your hard work. I wouldn't visit Iceland with any other company. Thanks, Nordic Saga Tours! Olivia and Barry Charles
