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.

Swimsuit, towel and warm clothing

Hi Dora, I thought I'd write a review for the Baltic Impressions tour my husband and I took part in back in July. We really enjoyed ourselves and I think you did a great job suggesting the perfect tour for our schedule and our personal interests. I visited Latvia when I was a teenager, so it was really fun visiting again and seeing how the city has grown. Our dinners in Latvia were really special and reminiscent of my time here way back when. I think the hotels were all great, though the hotel in Cesis was a bit too rustic for me. It was neat, but I'm a sucker for the newer hotels and all the accommodations they offer. Other than that, our guide was wonderful, the weather was nice, and I don't really have any complaints! It was a really nice trip and I'm glad we decided to go through with booking it. Touring the Baltics will always be in my top 5 favorite travel memories. Pam Tierney
