What you'll do

I live in Hafnarfjörður - the town in the lava. We have easy access to many beautiful areas, hills, volcanoes, mountains and lava fields of course. We will meet by my local, public swimming pool where I'm a frequent guest. We start the tour from there and walk into the lava field, passing some trees and a small lake, walk to the top of Ásfjall hill with a great view of the town. We will take it easy and enjoy some Icelandic snacks and refreshments during the hike, enjoy the beautiful nature and the peaceful area. In the small group we will have the chance to chat about the genuine Icelandic culture and history. I will tell you about the Elves and the hidden people, trolls, Yule lads and more and do my best to answer all your questions. I always bring the Icelandic flag with me and can take photos of the hikers with it on top of the peak/hill. After the walk of approximately 2 hours, we will head back to the swimming pool and end by relaxing in the hot tubs, have a chat and be able to connect with the locals. Many Icelanders frequent the swimming pools everyday the whole year for a outdoor bathing, to swim or just to socialize and relax in the hot and soothing water. Join us!
