Hverarond, Lake Myvatn

4.8
#5 of 15 in Nature in Northeast Region
Leave behind the comforts of civilization at Hverarond, where the power of nature rules. Few countries compare to Iceland when it comes to volcanic activity, and this field of fumaroles and hot springs is a prime example. Experience the relentless undrground energy, visible in the columns of steam, boiling water, and bubbling mud pots. No plants or animals can survive in this highly acidic environment, but you will see an abundance of colorful minerals. Walk up to the vents and pools, taking care to stay safe. Wear comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting muddy. Note that the steam and smell of sulfur might be uncomfortable for some.

  • The place is really more like Mars than to Earth and even the sounds, and smell (or rather stink) was not earthly)) is very beautiful, very unusually. Thanks to the favorable location, visited more than once and I'll say it, better still looks sunny-when paint play brighter. Be sure to visit! You cannot miss this!
