"Hveragerši: Earthquake crack" Iceland Things to Do Tip by Krumel

Iceland Things to Do: 998 reviews and 2,342 photos


When you pass through Hveragerði, make sure you stop at the shopping centre in the town and visit the tourist office there, where an earthquake crack runs right through the office and the adjoining library.

But rather than filling it in it was instead covered with thick glass and lit up so that you can stand on top of it and look down into the crack. Cool :-).

Directions: 45 km east of Reykjavik

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
