Put on your hiking boots!
Hveragerði - An ideal base to explore the South part of Iceland. Inni - Boutique apartments are situated in the geothermal town Hveragerði, only a 45 km drive from the city of Reykjavík. Hveragerði is an ideal base for exploring both the city of Reykjavík and all the great sights in the South of Iceland like the Golden circle, the South shore waterfalls and Black beaches. The town is known in Iceland for its many greenhouses where flowers are grown all year round – thanks to geothermal heating.
Hiking and exploring. There are plenty of hiking options in and around Hveragerði, and at the apartment you will find a map with walking routes in the area. Trout and salmon swim in the Varmá river, berries are for the picking on the heath to the west of the town, and the area abounds in excellent walking routes.
Reykjadalur - Hot river trail is the most popular hike in the area. It is about an one-hour walk (3 km uphill) to the valley, where you can bathe in a hot spring river and relax after the quite steep walk. From Inni apartments is only around 3 km drive to the trailhead.
Steaming geothermal area. In the middle of the town there is geothermal area that is securely fenced off, but may be visited by arrangement with the tourist information centre. At the tourist centre you can also visit an earthquake exhibition where you can step into a simulator and experience an earthquake on the same scale as the one that hit Hveragerði in 2008 (6.3 Richter). In that same earthquake a new hot spring area broke through the ground. It is situated on the hillside above the town where you can also walk around.
Restaurants and services. Besides the hot springs, Hveragerði has much to offer for tourists. In the town you will find one of the oldest geothermal outdoor swimming pool in Iceland, with hot tubs, whirlpools and a natural steam bath. Several restaurants are in the town, bakery, supermarket, pharmacy and a wine-store.
