Hveragerði

A vast number of people pass through or by Hveragerði in south Iceland each year. Located 45 km from Reykjavik, Hveragerði may be seen from the vantage point of the Kambar mountain slope, as it spreads out across a 5,000 year-old lava field.

In 1946 Hveragerði became its own municipality. Hveragerði has been a productive town in the last few years. New buildings are appering as more and more people are choosing to come and live in the town attracted by its tranquillity and closeness to nature. The growing population has risen to 2300.
