How do you turn the raw power of an active volcano into hot water and electricity? Fascinating answers await at the Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant visitor centre, located on the Hengill Volcano. Enjoy informative displays about geothermal technology, the environment and the area’s history.

At the charming town of Hveragerði, stop for a short walk around the local geothermal area. Savour local refreshments, including hot spring bread baked by traditional underground methods.

As you venture through the Thingvellir National Park, feast your eyes on the wild rocky scenery where two tectonic plates part. Admire the tranquil wilderness of Thingvallavatn, Iceland’s largest natural lake. Gaze across countless hot springs continuously spraying sulphur-rich deposits across the mystical landscape.
