Hveragerði’s steamy geothermal nature is seen long before arrival to the town. This is a hotbed of beauty, greenhouses and surprises. The Geothermal Park in the middle of town is interesting. There are a number of wonderful walking trails leading through the steamy valley close by.
Hveragerði is the home of Iceland’s NFLI Health and Rehabilitation Clinic, a very apt location for health and wellbeing. Reykjadalur, the steamy valley of hot springs along a warm river is just outside the town. Driving up to Hellisheiði on the way to Reykjavik offers a spectacular view over the region.
