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
With a week to visit Norway, I wanted us to experience as much as we possibly could. Besides, we wanting to avoid the overcrowded tours. This tour gave us exactly what we were looking for - extremely knowledgeable tour leader Olsson, amazing views of one of the most beautiful places of the world. The Flamsbana had some of the best views I have ever seen and the waterfalls along with the fjord cruise were stunning. The food was topnotch. We would highly recommend this tour and Nordic Saga for their outstanding service. Regards, Sigi Foggi
