Hverarond, Lake Myvatn

(4.7/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Reykjahlid tour planner makes visiting Hverarond and other Reykjahlid attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Stopped by here for a while, not as picturesque as I would like but worth stopping for. Again not for un accompanied children, very dangerous hot steam and no barriers to speak of. Would probably spen...  more »
  • An interesting mix of steam vents and bubbling mud. Be prepared to get your shoes very muddy if you follow the string paths surrounding the bubbling pools! 
  • Driving from de East Fjords on Route 1, just before arriving to Lake Myvtan, you will see the bubbling mud pots, steam vents and fumaroles of Hverir Park. Be sure to stop and visit, it has easy access...  more »

  • Truly an amazing place. You really feel like you're on another planet. The smell is like rotten eggs and is the biggest con, but the surroundings are mesmerizing. and the small lead (i think) rivers are cool as well.
  • This is a nice place to visit. There are hot mud pits and steam holes. The land is deformed by the geothermal activity and the hot mud pits really contrast with the snow usually present not far from Hverir. You can take a few photos, even get up close, but be prepared for the terrible sulphur smell.
  • One of the coolest places in Iceland and a total must see!! Allocate an hour of your time and get creative with your camera!!!
  • This place was fun to visit. The bubbling mud and constant steam is almost shocking to see in person. Would definitely recommend. And it's right off route 1.
  • Top place, for blub blub and geothermical earthbeginnings. Smells SO2 all the way.
