Hot Springs Eternal

Deildartunga near Reykholt. A geothermal field including Deildartunguhver, which yields water at 97°C, and is the most productive hot spring in Iceland. Most of the water used for central heating in Akranes and Borgarnes is taken from here. Whatever you do, don't stick your finger in to see if it's hot!
