Hveragerði holidays

Hveragerði Situated 45 km from Reykjavik, close to the southern coastline, the town sits on an area of geothermal activity with the waters from the hot springs used as heating for the various greenhouses located there. The subsequent horticultural boom has led to the expansion of the town and the opening of a geo thermal park, open during the summer for tourists. Hveragerði was actually struck by an earth quake in 2008 producing a new hot spring area situated on the hillside above the town. Several very active hot springs can be seen that throw colourful mud and clear water in the air. The town also has a museum chronicling people’s experiences and damage to the town as a result of the earth quake in 2008.
