Just a minute drive from route no. 1. An interesting place to see! All in all it will take you around 30 minutes and you’ll love it.

This is an easy place to visit to see a bit of all the strange volcanic activity that goes on in Iceland. Bubbling mud, noisy steam vents, sulfur and boiling stuff all around you. Free entrance and free parking. Open 7/24H and just 100m on...More

Hverir is great fun, like a mini-Yellowstone with closer access to the fumeroles and hotspots. Right on the Ring Road, so you can't miss it.

It is right off ring road, very easy access. Yellow and white landscape made very good picture. The area was smelling but not that bad.

Just off the Ring Road, Hverir (also called Namafjall) has bubbling inky black mud pots, mineral-stained earth, and numerous smoke-spouting fumeroles. They are the source of the intense sulphur smell in the air. There's a deck overlook right off the parking lot, parking is free...More

This is an amazing view of the power of the geothermal energy coursing below the surface of the earth. Bubbling mud pots and steaming fumaroles dot the yellow and white-stained landscape, and the walking trails weaving ever-so-close, affording some very interesting views. Yes the smell...More

No fee for parking or entrance You can take as much time as you want including a quick picture from a look out point or an hour of following a path.
