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.

3 out of 5 - this tour can be more challenging if there´s a lot of snow on the mountain.

This tour went to some amazing places. Dora was very reassuring that it would be ok in spite of rising tensions between nations and Russia. St. Petersburg was one of the most amazing cities we have ever been to and it was made even more enjoyable with the fabulous guide we had, Masha. She was so knowledgable about everything we saw but more than that, she went above the call of duty in helping us get to the World Cup. We can't recommend her highly enough. We felt very safe in St. Petersburg - not at all what we were expecting. The ferry staterooms were very, very basic, but food on the ferry was varied and plentiful, also including wine and beer. All in total, fantastic trip!!! Thank you Dora!
