Description

Over 70% of Iceland's energy consumption is powered by geothermal energy - that's a higher percentage than anywhere else on the planet! 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.

And this is your opportunity to tour one of the world's biggest single-unit power plants with a knowledgeable guide.

You'll learn how this 100% green and sustainable energy is produced. It's an eye-opening look at man harnessing mother nature.

Insider tip

This exhibition is presented by ON Power - a leading Icelandic power company which harnesses geothermal energy and sends it to more than half of the country's population.

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.
