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
My husband and I had a great time this September on Scenic North Tour with Moscow arranged for us by Nordic Saga Tours. The booking was easy and Dora was very helpful through all the trip. We appreciated it very much. The tour itself was very well organised with enough time to enjoy each city. The tour director Mark was really good in making sure everyone was taken care of and he was always pleasant, friendly, patient and funny. The motor coaches were comfortable with ample room for everyone. We also enjoyed the ferry rides. The meals provided were delicious and the hotels were conveniently located to explore each city during our free time. The local guides were very knowledgeable and organized - we avoided lines to enter the major attractions. It was most certainly a wonderful way to see Scandinavia and part of Russia. - Caterina, NYC
