Really fascinating to see water appearing for the first time since it fell as rain some 1000 years ago and at 100 Degree Celsius. Not a huge amount to see here but worth popping in whilst in the area. Wish we’d known about the newly...More

If you have Visited the Geysir, you probably won’t find this excited. However, it’s still very amazing to see this natural environment. You can visit it when you have time but don’t make your way if you don’t.

Interesting for a quick stop. Boiling water gushes from a number of natural springs. It is harnessed a piped some 80km as hot water heating for homes. A very green environmental use of a natural resource.

These thermal springs provide essentially for the towns of Borgarnes and Akranes with water being piped over 94 kilometres to reach them. The springs come out of the ground at 80 degrees plus. The pumping station is also of interest.

Well worth the stop at Europe’s largest hottest spring. There is parking and a few trails to walk along. Bring a picnic and eat at one of the benches or pick up some tomatoes grown in a greenhouse heated by geothermal energy.

We saw several steam vents and a pipe coming form a building. The hot water is piped to the surrounding towns.
