Flúðir is a hamlet developed around its proximity to the Hellisholt geothermal field. An important greenhouse industry is operated at Flúðir, including Iceland's largest production of mushrooms. In 1899 geologist Dr. Helgi Pétursson (1872-1949) found palagonite tuff formations at Hellisholt, which led to new theories about the duration of the Ice Age.
