Join an experienced guide for a tour of the Geothermal Exhibition at Hellisheiði (pronounced “het-li-shay-thee”) - the newest and biggest geothermal power plant in Iceland.

Just 20 minutes from Reykjavik, the Hellisheiði is making use of Iceland's active volcanos to produce 303 MW of electricity! It's all sustainable too - that geothermal power is self-generating.

I was disappointed with the exhibit. I was hoping the exhibit would last longer and be more informational. The exhibit speaker only spoke for about 5-10 minutes max.
