Hot springs capital of the world. [...] During summer trouts can often be seen jumping up the magnificent waterfall in their way upstream. 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. Troughout the year, 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.
