Hverarond, Lake Myvatn

4.7
#5 of 13 in Nature in Lake Myvatn
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.

  • This point is easily missed on the way from the east to the lake on the counter. One feels like the heat in Taiwan, more than a fountain, a lot of sulfur, and sometimes it's time to look

  • If you come to Iceland, you are forced to go through Hverarond. Beautiful colors, impressive fumaroles and smell of suffer. Plan something to clean your shoes before you get in your car.
