Hveragerði is a town and municipality in the south of Iceland located 45 km to the east of Reykjavík on Iceland’s main ringroad, Route 1 and can be seen from the vantage point of the Kambar mountain slope, as it spreads out across a 5,000 year-old lava field.. The river Varmá runs through the town. The surrounding area is part of the Hengill central volcano, and is geothermally active and experiences very frequent (usually minor) earthquakes.
Pillars of steam from the numerous hot springs in the town may be seen rising up out of the ground. In summer the town is truly a green community, abounding in trees. A green revolution is taking place as areas of woodland in and around Hveragerði expand, with the locals working together in order to further develop their blossoming town.
The town is known for its greenhouses, which are heated by hot water from volcanic hot springs. These springs are the site of occurrence of certain extremophile micro-organisms, that are capable of surviving in extremely hot environments. Close to the church is a hot spring called Sandhólshver, formed during the violent South Iceland earthquake of 1896. A fenced-off geothermal area in the town has numerous hot springs and fumaroles.
Hveragerði contains a number of greenhouses and is a hotbed for Icelandic horticulture.
