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

testimonials
Hi Dora, Thank you for making our trip to Scandinavia so much fun. We really enjoyed the Splendor of the Fjords tour and felt we got to see a lot of Norway. It's really an amazing place, isn't it? The sights and smells are so clean and beautiful, we never wanted to leave! Learning about the history of the country was great and I really have to comment on how wonderful your guides were. Very smart and friendly, too. Our hotels were always nice and the food was much tastier than we had expected. Everything seemed to go according to plan, so thanks again. If we travel Scandinavia in the future, I'll be sure to get in contact with you! Marybeth Voyager
