Hengill area and Geothermal energy exhibition

Hengill is about 100 kilometers long and about 15 km wide volcanic system. A large part of lake Þingvellir lies in the fissure swarm of the system and the landscape of Þingvellir is shaped by the geological activity of Hengill. Acidic rocks are found to some extent in the volcano. However, basalt is the main form of rock in the volcano. There are a lot of cracks and faults in the system and by lake Þingvellir the land has sunk by up to 40 meters in the last 10,000 years.

Mt. Hengill has not been very active for last 10,000 years. Volcanic eruptions appear to be occurring at approx. every 2000 years. Geothermal energy is in Hengill and natural springs. To the south of Hengil are three valleys and in the innermost valley, between Hengil and Skarðsmýrarfjall, is one of the largest fumaroles in the country.

There are two power plants at Hengil, Hellisheiðarvirkjun and Nesjavallavirkjun, which use geothermal energy from the volcano. The Hengill area is ideal for outdoor activities all year round. The geothermal area around the dormant volcano Mt. Hengill is perfect for hiking. There are numerous marked hiking trails colored after difficulty. Diverse landscapes
and colorful colors characterize the hiking trails.

The Geothermal Energy Exhibition at Hellisheiði Power Plant is an exploration into the utilization of geothermal energy in Iceland. The Hellisheiði Power Plant is a great example of how geothermal energy can be utilized in a sustainable manner and is a showcase for geothermal' s global role in a renewable and sustainable future. The exhibition is located at Hellisheiði power plant by road no. 1.

The construction of Flói irrigation system began in 1922 and irrigation began its activities in 1927. When the irrigation was inaugurated in 1927 it was one of the greatest structures in Europe and to this day it plays an important role in transferring water between farms.

Ingólfsfjall mountain

Ingólfsfjall mountain in Ölfus is 551m. Ingólfsfjall is fenced with cliffs in three ways and very steep. When the sea level was highest at the end of the ice age, it was a steep head that the waves broke down and created the steep slopes. It is connected to Grafningsfjöll with Grafningsháls. Ingólfsfjall is mainly made of palagonite with lava layers in between. Ingólfsfjall was formed in the middle of the ice age.

To the south of the western corner of the mountain protrudes a gray cliff called Silfurberg, which is made of palagonite with light hole fillings that are mainly rayon deposits. To the south is Kögunarhóll and the main road lies between. Ingólfsfjall is named after the settler Ingólf Arnarson. Up on the mountain is a gray stone hill called Inghóll and it is said that Ingólfur is buried there. Below Ingólfsfjall on the south side is Fjallstún.

The Settlement Book states that Ingólfur Arnarson spent his third winter in Iceland on his way to Reykjavík. Later, a large farm called Fjall was built there and was deserted in the 18th century. Remains of ancient structures can still be seen on the site and are now protected.

On May 29, 2008, the source of the Suðurlandsskjálfi earthquake was 6.3 on the Richter scale below Ingólfsfjall.

Ölfusárbrú - suspension bridge

A suspension bridge over Ölfusá River was first built in 1891 and became the largest bridge in Iceland at the time. In September 1944, when the bridge had been in use for 53 years, the eastern bearing cables broke due to the weight of two trucks. A new suspension bridge was built in 1945 which only took five and a half months but while it was being constructed the old bridge had been fixed for temporary use. The bridge is 84 meters long and is in the town Selfoss.

Hellisskógur forest

Hellisskógur is a small forest just outside of the town Selfoss. In Hellisskógur are roads and walking paths around the area and benches so visitors can relax and enjoy the area.

The cave in Hellisskógur forest was formed at a latter glacial period by sea erosion. Sea levels have been higher than now several times and signs of sea erosion can be seen on more cliffs in the area which are made of around 0, 7 - 3, 1 million year old basalt. The cave was previously used to store hay in the back and as a sheepcote in the front. It was once believed that the cave was haunted by a ghost wearing a blue scarf. The story tells of a young man who was broken hearted and hung himself in the cave using a long blue scarf.

Olfusa river

The river is the most voluminous river in Iceland with an average flow of 423 m³/sec. Three large floods occurred in the 20th century and beside the restaurant, Tryggvaskáli are lines that show the height of each flood. All the floods occurred during the wintertime due to heavy rains and high temperatures which caused the snow to melt unusually fast. Ölfusá River is rather short, about 25 km (14 miles) long. About 6 km (4 mi) north of Selfoss are two rivers, Sogið and Hvítá, and combined they form Ölfusá.
