Some of South Iceland’s most notable tourist attractions are not far from Hveragerði, for instance Gullfoss Falls, Geysir Hot Springs, Skálholt, and Þingvellir National Park. The environment around Hveragerði is pristine, a true paradise for outdoor enthusiasts.
Near Hveragerði is the State Horticultural School located at Reykir in Ölfus, an ancient farmstead that many famous chieftains called home, including Gissur Jarl and Hálfdan the Lawspeaker.
Many nationally known artists have now made Hveragerði their home, so in addition to being called In Bloom, Hveragerði is often spoken of as an artists’ centre.
It is easy to enjoy life in all its splendour in Hveragerði. Salmon and trout swim in the Varmá River, berries grow wild in fields to the west of town, and innumerable walking trails wind through the beautiful countryside.
