Kárahnjúkar hydro-electric dam

Up in the highlands is the controversial Kárahnjúkar hydro-electric dam, the biggest in Europe. It is 97km from Egilsstaðir with a tarred road all the way. The undisturbed view of the highlands and its peaks is breath-taking. Mt. Snæfell can easily be seen from Kárahnjúkar.
