Directions to Deildartunguhver and Langjökull


At about 80 km from Gerðuberg, you will find deildartunguhver, the largest hot spring in Iceland. You’ll get there by following Route 54 until Bogarnes, and then take Route 1 north for 18 km. (Photo by: martin_vmorris)

Then take Route 50 and follow this also for 18 km until you see the car park for Deildartunguhver on the right. There is usually a stall where you can buy fresh tomatoes grown in the greenhouses nearby.

With more than 180 liters of hot water per second coming out of the ground here, Deildartunguhver is the highest-flow hot spring in Iceland. You can explore the site via a wooden walkway. The hot water is used for heating the city of Borgarnes.

  • Special places we would have missed otherwise ... We have just returned from a 16-day Iceland tour. The travel book was very helpful, we had downloaded and printed. The PDF travel guide helped us to find nice places. Very organized itinerary with a road map which listed all sites. TOP!
