Hotsprings Around Hveragerdi

  • This bike tour has great value and has been our best seller & the tour suits every age group and level. So far it does not matter if you are beginner or super advanced biker, this tour has something for everyone and has scored a top score every time!

    Hveragerði and the nearest surroundings are a beautiful place with magnificent landscape. The town is positioned on an active volcanic zone and 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. Amongst the changes was a whole new geothermal area which came to life just outside the town.

    In this tour we show you Hveragerði in an exclusive tour where we bike in and outside of the town. It takes us through the grown hills into the new geothermal area where you witness a range of hot springs from small gurgling ones to vibrant super heated pools of water and steam. We will boil some eggs in one of the many hot springs and eat bread that has been baked in a hot spring. Then 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.

    You will get a taste of single tracks that offer a fun flow and enjoyable ride. But if someone in the group does not like to be on single tracks then we have wider gravel roads that lie through the forest as well.

    Bathing options:
    In the middle of the tour you will be given the chance to jump of a 1-5 meter cliff into a cold river and then warm up in a hot waterfall, or just go straight in the hot waterfall. OR we can end the by taking a relaxing bath in the local geothermally heated swimming pool inside of Hveragerði.
     

    We operate the tour in small groups, 2-6 persons, and if the group is bigger than 4 persons the tour is automatically a private tour. But we off course service bigger group than 6 persons if they order together.
