Iceland Námafjall Hverir

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Have you ever dreamed to be in a lunar-like landscape? Welcome to Hverir ;)
It's a geothermal area at the base of Námafjall, with some blue and grey boiling mud pools and steaming fumaroles on a plain in the ochre colours surrounded by a dead mountain without vegetation ( the high temperature in the ground has to be for something their ^^). Great playground for photographers and every nature lover.

Photography Tips

Be careful and stay on the path, the temperature may be very high (60/90° C) just a few centimetres under the ground, and every year some tourists who step over barriers are feet burned, and the ground collapses on their weights. Except this, have fun & explore every opportunity of this great location.

Ah, this was this place about... we drove by about 4 times when we went to Myvatn and back to some other waterfalls. You should mention that this spot smells like hell :D And I thought that this place is again something like a Geysir, so we didn't stop here. Looks pretty cool though!

For me it's different from geysir/Strokkur, this place have a lot more of activities i think, the fumaroles are very noisy, The smoke goes out with a lot of power, it's very impressive. Also the mudpools are everywhere with great shapes and colors, but no geysir there that's true. And it's smell like hell indeed :D
