The geothermal area of Hverir is located east of Lake Myvatn on the base of Mount Námafjall.
Bubbling mudpools, fumeroles
of hissing steam and boiling hot springs set the tone in this strange landscape.
The strong smell of sulpher is everywhere
you go and you better watch your step so not to damage your shoes or worse. It's easy to get burned here.
Hverir is a major tourist
attaction so most probably you will not be alone when you visit here.
