Experience the true winter land in Iceland by traveling with us over lave fields and the snowy depths of the Hengill volcano area with snow shoes strapped to our boots. We will start the tour by driving up towards the mountains where we start the hike. As we snow-shoe further into the area we will start to see more and more hotsprings and amazing views. The guide will share with you the history of the hotsprings and the Hengill volcanic area which is the second biggest volcanic area in Iceland. We will stop at one of the hotsprings and boil some eggs and make hot chocolate using the power of the earth. After the hot refreshment we will take a relaxing bath in a natural hot river with hotsprings all around that melt their way through the snow and ice. After the bath we will hike down from the mountain to the Iceland Activities station where we will end the tour.
We are proud to be the only company in Iceland offering true local guides in Reykjadalur and Hengill volcanic area. Guides who grew up from a young age bathing in Reykjadalur valley.
If there is not enough snow on the area on the day of the tour, then we will llet you know and change the tour into the Hotspring winter circle.
