Welcome to Hveragerði & Around
The grid of boxy buildings that is Hveragerði emerge from otherworldly lava fields and hills pierced, surreally, by natural steaming vents. You're not here for the architecture, you're here because Hveragerði is the hot springs capital of the world, with a highly active geothermal field, which heats hundreds of greenhouses. Nationally, the town is famous for its horticultural college and naturopathic clinic. There are also some fantastic hikes in the area, though routes are sometimes packed in summer.
