Description
REYKHÓLAR (Reykholar) is a farming settlement home to just 120 people with attractive views out over Breiðafjörður to the Reykjanes peninsula.
It is one of the few places in the West Fjords to have a ready supply of geothermal energy, which today has been harnessed and provides the village with its main source of activity – the ugly Þörungaverksmiðja algae plant, located a couple of kilometres south of the village, that extracts minerals from seaweed to make toothpaste, soap and handcream.
Geothermal water is used for drying algae.
