present horticultural and greenhouse town Hveragerdi started
developing in 1902, when a carding factory was built
at the waterfall Reykjafoss.
The number of
hiking trails in Hveragerdi Hotspring area is much greater than
covered by this website. The shorter and more local ones are left out
for the most part. Tourist information centres at Hveragerdi offer
brochures covering the local areas in much more detail.
