Deildartunguhver

This bubbling hot spring situated on a beautiful farm is the largest and most powerful in Europe with a flow rate of 180 liters (50 gallons) of water per second at a piping hot 97°C (200°F). The scalding water bubbles out of an algae covered rocky outcrop creating a steamy source of power.

Most of the water heating homes and businesses in the towns of Borgarnes and Akranes comes from Deildartunguhver. It travels through a 64 kilometer (40 mi) pipeline, the longest of its kind in Iceland. Adjacent to the hot spring is a small stand where visitors can purchase organic tomatoes grown using geothermal heat in the nearby greenhouses.
