The smell of sulfur fills the air. The ground is bubbling and steam is rising. This is a cool place to visit to experience Iceland geothermal activity first hand. Very popular stop (lots of buses and tourists) but definitely worth a visit. Stay on the...More

If you've never seen large geothermal anomalies before, this may be interesting. But it's quite small and not very spectacular. A few large steam vents, silty Black bubbling lake and that's about it. Disappointing really

Very smelly. If you've been to Yellowstone, these will not excite you one bit. They're kind cool, but compared to all there is to see in Iceland they're just so-so.

Boiling mud pools, fumerols, steam, noise. This is a product of an active volcanic area. And it's great! You can get up close to nature.

Hi - a girl from Akureyri here! The boiling mud pools, Hverarönd in Icelandic, are by Lake Mývatn. It takes you around 1 hour and 20 minutes to get there from Akureyri. The GPS coordinates are: 65° 38.466'N, 16° 48.549'W... More
