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

Good morning Dora! I hope all is well with you. I wanted to get in touch to let you know that my trip to Iceland last month was spectacular! You really went above and beyond for me and my husband and I can tell you love what you do. I've already given your name to a few friends hoping to travel in the fall, so hopefully you'll be hearing from them soon. :) Anyway, this tour was beautiful and such a special experience. From the many waterfalls to the geysers, black sand beaches, sheep grazing in almost every field, amazing buildings, food, and the spirit of the locals, it was a trip we won't forget. We have so many great photos to look back on and whenever we do, we smile. I hope to bring my kids there someday. So, thanks again for making this Iceland tour so much fun. We'll be in touch.
