The capital of hot springs
Hveragerði and the nearest surroundings are a beautiful place with magnificent landscape. The town is positioned on an active volcanic zone. Earthquakes are frequent thanks to the tectonic movements that rumble below. On May 29th 2008 an earthquake with a magnitude of 6,3 on the richter scale hit the town and a new geothermal area was created just outside it.
In this tour we will show you Hveragerdi in an exclusive tour where we will bike in and outside of the town in a magnificent environment through the grown hills into the new geothermal area where you will witness a range hot springs from small gurgling ones to vibrant super heated pools of water and steam. You will get the opportunity to boil an egg in one of the many hot springs and eat bread that has been baked in a hot spring. There after we will travel fun paths beside the river in Hveragerði and our guide will point out fun facts and interesting places, one of those places is the earthquake museum where you can try an earthquake simulator. The tour will end by taking a relaxing bath in geothermally heated swimming pool inside of Hveragerði.
