All reviews steam vents ring road bubbling mud worth a stop easy stop geothermal area geological features interesting place to visit rotten eggs steam coming sulfur smell information boards shoe covers out of this world hot springs boiling water the main road
Flat plain covered in all manner of volcanic manifestations - hot water pools, fumaroles, mudpots - all surrounded by brown, orange and yellow caked deposits. The whole area seems about to erupt, and the rising steam can be seen from a long distance away. Fences...More
This place is amazing. There are a lot of different mud pots that happily bubble away, and you can get very close. There are also other areas where the steam is coming out of sulphur in the ground. Right next to this area is a...More
Very hard to have favourite places in Iceland as everywhere you go is amazing but if I had to pick, this would be one of my favourites. Steam, and lots of it, is emitted from everywhere you look both at ground level and from the...More
Very intense sulfur smell reduce visiting time to 5 min. A lot of flies so it is wise to bring some kind of net that will protect your head. The site is interesting to see because of the colors and different landscape. Free parking. Time...More
You can't miss this huge geothermal area from the road. And you won't miss the smell either...
One of our kids found it all too much and didn't make it past the first mudpot.
The steam vents, bubbling gloop and weird Martian-like soil colours are...More
This is a must see in the northeast of Iceland. As far as I can tell, Hverarond is the same as the mud pots, in theHverir area. The landscape is so fascinating, with sulfur-smelling steam rising from the ground, mud pits bubbling hotly, and vibrant...More

If you want to do those activities, you'll need to rent a car. Tours to Landmannalaugar and Thorsmork will be wrapping up in September... I don't know the exact dates tours end. If you did those tours from Reykjavik, you could rent a 2WD car and do the Ring Road on your own. That would save you some money. Renting a 4WD for the duration of your trip will seriously eat into your budget. To save some money, stay in Reykjavik for a few days and so some tours. Go to the Blue Lagoon on your way...More
Hverir/Hverarond? (1 Replies)
Hello, I am feverishly planning away from for my February self-drive trip to Iceland. I think that my lack of knowledge of the Icelandic language might be hampering my research. I have received recommendations from separate sources to visit the Hverarond geothermal site and the Hverir geothermal site. But, when I look on maps, they only show one of the other location. Are these two words names for the same geothermal area? Thank you! Laura

Hi, I've finally done up my itinerary a week before departing! Places are listed in the order they're marked on my trip advisor map I will be renting a 2WD and am travelling solo. I will not be prepared for long hikes but will go on 1 - 2 hour walks. I've purposely left out the 2 waterfalls north of Mavytn Is anywhere I've listed inaccessible by 2WD? Will I be able to find everything by using a GPS? Do the names come up on GPS? Or am I going to have trouble with this and need a road...More
