Full description

Discover how Iceland produces green, sustainable energy at the Hellisheiði Geothermal Energy Exhibition in Selfoss. This self-guided tour will allow you to see the front lines of Iceland‘s work toward environmental sustainability and the history of geothermal energy in the country.

Your experience begins at the Hellisheiði Power Plant, located roughly 20 minutes outside of Reykjavík. The power plant is located beneath Mount Hengill and is surrounded by lava fields, moss, and scenic mountain landscapes.

Start your self-guided tour by making your way through the interactive exhibition with commentary from your informative audio guide. Experience first-hand how green, sustainable energy is produced at the largest single-site geothermal power plant in the world.

A super interesting way to understand Iceland and part of its history better. The exhibits are well done and engaging, and the downloadable audio tour is a nice compliment. We enjoyed that part afterwards.

Leider war keine Führung in die Turbinenhalle möglich, ansonsten sehr spannend, v. a. für Technik-Interessierte Besucher, für jüngere Kinder eher weniger gut geeignet.
