It could be a place in hell - impressive colors and mud holes, smoking hills and a terrible stench - by all means look at it, but don't forget a perfumed scarf, otherwise you can easily get sick.

We were kinda in rush to reach Mývatn but we decided to stop to let the kids running! As a Geologist this small geothermal field is just amazing. You can find so many little details and my kids in the end wanted to know the how and when all this was created... just another surprise in this marvelous island!

With the smell of sulfur and mist and mud at your feet, it felt like we were on a different planet (in a good way). Cool place to see the thermic pools, highly suggest.

Hverir is a geothermal area with boiling mudpools and steaming fumaroles. You can walk trhough the area, but watch out for the mud. And it can get a bit smelly, but it's worth it. Easily reachable right next to ring road 1, between Krafla and Lake Myvatn.

What a beautiful place. Hverir is a unique wasteland in which pools of boiling mud, hot springs and hissing chimneys give life to a desolate Mars-like scenery. Hot air craters, smoking rock crevices, bubbling mud puddles, reds, oranges and yellows, and the smell of sulfur. Take your time to stroll around the bubbling gray puddles . It's definitely worth doing, because although the shoes will definitely get dirty, the bubbling mud seen from so close really impresses. The whole in beautiful red-brick colors. Awesome experience.
