Geothermal Wonderland

 

Enjoy nature upclose, meet the locals, and relax in geothermal hot springs. Experience Iceland authentically.

Hveragerði village holds its charm in all seasons. The dark winter skies are brightened by the magnificence of the northern lights whilst the white nights of summer are filled with migratory birdsong. 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, destress, and get away from the daily grind - to recharge amongst magnificent, natural surroundings. 

Highlights:

  • Close access to nature
  • Mingle with the locals
  • Away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Relax in Iceland's famous geothermal hot springs
  • Experience the northern lights in winter and relish in the midnight sun in summer

Included

  • 4 nights at chosen hotel or guesthouse in standard rooms
  • 4 x breakfast
  • Round trip airport transfers
  • Welcome walk in Hveragerði with a local guide
  • Golden Circle guided tour including lunch
