About this spot
Hverir is a geothermal area located in the north of Iceland, in the eastern part of the Mývatn region. It is known for its many fumaroles, or vents that emit steam and gases, and its hot mud pots, which are pools of boiling mud. The area has a strong sulfur smell due to the high sulfur content of the steam and gases that are emitted. The landscape is barren and otherworldly, with bright yellow and orange deposits of sulfur and other minerals on the ground. It is a popular tourist destination in Iceland, and visitors can walk along marked trails to see the geothermal features up close. Hverir is located near the Námaskarð pass, which is a popular stop on the Ring Road, the main road that circles the island of Iceland.
