Kárahnjúkar Dam

Service: service interesting


Kárahnjúkar dam is the tallest concrete-faced rockfill dam in Europe and among the largest of its kind in the world. Fljótsdalur Station is Iceland’s largest power station (690 MW). It produces a quarter of all electricity generated in the country, from a 420 meter vertical drop of water originating in the great Vatnajökull glacier. A tour guide will be located at the Kárahnjúkar dam this summer on Wednesdays and Saturdays in the afternoon.
