Thanks for helping!Share another experience before you go.
Stunning scenery with geo-thermal pools and activities. Is literally like being on a different planet. Don't miss it if you are in the area. Be sure to take a camera as well.
Amazing to see nature at its most purest. The sulfur smell is dominating this domain, it stinks of rotten eggs! But this makes the experience all the more wonderful! It was great to have some snow next to the parking area to clean our shoes, you don't get off the mud very easily. Bring a second pair!
This is a good spot for a quick stop. But once you see the steam and bubbling...you've pretty much seen it. Stick to the parking lot and paths if you don't want to get crazy amounts of mud on your boots.
This place is really neat with a variety of bubbling pot of stuff. But it really smells and was quite muddy, due to melting snow. Definitely worth a visit....it is amazing to see what our earth produces.
This unique place looks as if it was taken from outer space. Geothermal steam vents and mud pots make the soil too hot to carry any snow. The hot vents stink of sulfur, but it's bearable.
Each place in this particular region is so different from the last one you might have stopped at. This is also something else, with all those fumeroles hissing away and mud pot bubbling away. It is amazing, and lovely and safe to walk around, and of course, ever so scenic. We were here mid-September, and had good clear sunny day.... More
It was raining, which made walking around very muddy which stuck to your boots, but was still a really good day and extremely interesting, although smelly. Well worth a visit.
I'm getting confused here. Don't want to miss such an attraction but there're several names for it and pictures looks almost the same: Akureyri Mud Spot, Hverir (Krafla) Mud Fields, Lake Myvatn sulphur area. So i'm trying to understand are there numerous Mud Pots in different locations or all these names refer to one spot locating in Akureyri region?
Looking at the google maps and Akureyri city/town (?) is somewhat 100 km (roughly one hour away) from Lake Myvatn.
Are there 2 mud spots? one in Akureyri and one on Lake Myvatn? Or is it because of Lake Myvatn is a part of Akureyri region and that is why mud pots "in Akureyri"?
I'm getting really confused here. Don't want to miss such an attraction but getting numerous names for it: Hverir (Krafla?), Mud Pots in Akureyri, Lake Myvatn sulphur fields? are these basically refer to one matter located on Lake Myvatn or these are all different Mud Pots spots in a different locations?
