The Tourist Site Protection Fund recently allocated ISK 16 million for further development in Seltún in Krýsuvík. The grant is provided to improve facilities, services and hiking trails as well as to improve facilities for outdoor activities in the area as a whole. This is a very active high geothermal area and it requires that hiking trails need to be constantly repaired.
