Hveragerdi is a small town of about 1,700 inhabitants conveniently located on the Ring Road, Iceland's principal highway, some 28 miles (45 km) east of Reykjavík, Iceland's capital. The area is part of the Hengill central volcano full of mountains, colored clay and steaming springs that empty into the small river Varmá - one of South Icelands best sea-trout fishing rivers. Hveragerdi is set in a large geothermal area and has a relatively short history, being only a few decades old. Greenhouse cultivation is the primary industry (and tourist attraction), with the main emphasis on vegetables, flowers and even tropical fruits.
