Itinerary for Hveravellir
We have a few options to get to Hveravellir and we will choose the best route according to weather and snow conditions. The most exciting and our preferred route would be across the Langjokull glacier. This is a spectacular route and it's exciting to blaze across the vast white glacier. If the weather and snow conditions are less favorable, we might select the northern route, which is also very scenic but much easier than the glacier in more challenging conditions.
When we arrive at Hveravellir, we can do some light hiking and sightseeing among hot springs and steamvents, lava fields and barren wilderness. Drinks in the natural geothermal pool where you enjoy a relaxing soak while your driverguide prepares a traditional Icelandic dinner.
If the Northern Lights are visible, taking a midnight bath underneath the auroras is almost mandatory. In any case, sitting in a natural hot pool in the middle of nowhere on a dark winter night, surrounded by nothing but wilderness and glaciers, is magical and mind blowing experience that will stay with you forever.
Our driverguide will prepare a 3 course dinner for you, a traditional Icelandic feast; cured or smoked salmon for starter, grilled lamb for main course and a desert. Breakfast the next day is of course also included together with lunch and snacks for the day.
For the route back we will go south, down the mountain road Kjolur - which is not really a road in winter - but still accessible in our modified Super-Jeeps. This route leads down to Gullfoss and Geysir - so we do the Golden Circle, Iceland's most popular tourist route on the way back.
