Bjarnarflag is the oldest geothermal power station in Iceland, having been first opened nearly fifty years ago in 1969.

The station can be found near Námafjall, a mountain renowned for its hot spring area, Námaskarð, in the north of the country. It is used to power the Mývatn region, in particular, the Mývtan Nature Baths

Because Bjarnarflag is located in the rift valley that runs through Iceland, it is susceptible to earthquakes and has been closed for maintenance several times.
