Hverarond, Lake Myvatn

4.8
#4 of 14 in Parks in Northeast Region
Hot Spring Nature / Park
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.

  • There is only the yellow sulfur, the white chalk, the hot steam whistle that is unleashed through sassi...ci are so many beautiful colors (Blues of iron sulphides have no description) and a special charm in this seemingly inhospitable area

  • Love this stuff. It's what we came to Iceland to see (among other things). Bubbling mud. Steam coming out the ground. Sulfur smell. Good photo ops. Worth a visit.  more »
  • You should look at necessarily this fantastic nature spectacle with great colours, reggae, and even smell. The smell can be very disturbing for some people, but that should be a matter at the moment. Parking is also available. We had very nice weather, also this destination was all the more important. Unfortunately we had here not much time alone to look at that, because we were travelling in a group.
