Plans for utilizing the Nesjavellir area for geothermal power and water heating began in 1947, when some boreholes were drilled to evaluate the area's potential for power generation. Research continued from 1965 to 1986. In 1987, the construction of the plant began, and the cornerstone was laid in May 1990.
Our tour guide decided he could make it to the top of the Reynisorangar peninsula lighthouse. He told us many times the road is not possible in their tour vans. Terrific view from the top.
