Kárahnjúkar Dam


Welcome to the land of renewable energy!

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 (2017) on Thursdays and Saturdays between 14:00 and 17:00
