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.

  • It is an area with geothermal phenomena on the surface. Fumaroles, mud volcanoes and mountains who smoke, seething. Not to be missed.

  • During the winter the heat of the Earth mingles with the intense cold and the snow. The space is very nice. With the possibility of walking between the vapors. However, you can never be too careful. The ground on the snow slide ... many holes make it difficult to walk.

  • A place almost magical where can appreciate the heat so intense that is found to not many meters below the soil and is manifest in the surface in form of pools of mud boiling and large fumaroles that make the noise of a turbine of aircraft.

  • 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.
