Geothermal Wonderland

Enjoy nature upclose, meet the locals, and relax in geothermal hot springs

Hveragerði village holds its charm in all seasons. The white nights of summer are filled with migratory birdsong, whilst the dark winter skies are brightened by the magnificence of the northern lights. Hveragerði has a peaceful small town feel and is easily explored on foot.

That’s the real beauty of the location.


Icelanders term it as ‘upp í sveit’ or ‘out in the country’. It’s somewhere you go to relax, de stress, and get away from the daily grind - to recharge amidst magnificent, natural surroundings.

Highlights:

  • Close to Nature
  • Meet the Locals
  • Away from the City Bustle
  • Relax in Geothermal hot springs

 

Included

  • 4 nights at chosen hotel or guesthouse in standard rooms
  • 4 x breakfast
