2f. The Golden Circle - Hveragerði

Hveragerdi (Hveragerði) is a small, friendly village about 30 km from Reykjavik. There are many small hot springs close to the village (drive through the village and head to the mountains), which can be worth looking at and even take a small walk.
In Hveragerdi there are two swimming pools. One close to the main road in Hotel Örk and another bigger one, closer to the nature, by the root of the small mountain. An ice-cream in Eden (a restaurant) is very popular afterwards. A trip to Hveragerdi with swimming and visit to Eden is a common habbit for many icelandic families during weekends.
