Hverir, Reykjahlid

#3 of 26 in Things to do in Lake Myvatn
Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
Leave behind the comforts of civilization at Hverir, 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.

  • Hverir is a large field of solfataras – evil-smelling belching mud pools and screaming steam vents – and this, although it was only a Tier 2 attraction in our opinion, was well worth visiting Myvatn.....  more »

  • Maytn areas another cool attraction - Must visit it when you’re in Iceland. You will really like this attraction because this is one of the unique sulfur geothermal openings. What do you find here you cannot find anywhere else in Iceland. Please note the weather can change in a minute so even though if the weather looks sunny please wear a rain gear while walking or hiking and it will be a great savior for you.
  • Very Awesome Place to go. It is Hot and Smelly, Different and Exciting, and also One of a Kind to Iceland and a Tourist Hot Spot. Can spend a bit of Time Here if Not on a Schedule. Lots to do in this Area of Iceland.
