Nesjavellir road (road 435) is very close to Luxhus apartment.
Along the way you will see the most beautiful creations of weathered lava rocks and mountains. Amazing road view all the way to Thingvellir National Park.
This is also one of the best places to see Northern Light near to Reykjavik in the winter.
The Nesjavellir Geothermal Power Station is the second largest geothermal power station in Iceland. Because a lot of heat is close to the earth's surface, heat is being pumped from the ground. The energy can be used in 2 ways. The pumped up heat can be used directly for warming houses. Indirectly the pumped up heat can used for generating electricity. At Nesjavellir both are used. The pumped up heat is used for hot water and heating in Reykjavík and surroundings.
