Hveragerði and the nearest surroundings is 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 will show you Hveragerði with a fun and easy walk guided by a true local guide, who grew up on the area and will be able to point out interesting facts and the geological history of the area and show you how the people have been living with the hotpsrings for the past 100 year. We will show you a 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 for 24 hours.
