Hvrerir : slurries, solfataras and fumaroles.

You will also be able to see ponds of viscous slurries bubbling due to the permanent ascents of gases at their surface. These ponds stir argile sediments resulting from the decomposition of volcanic matter by sulfuric acid. The temperature of these ponds can vary between 80 to 200°C! For travelers’ safety, a security perimeter delimited by wood fences has been set up. So no worries at all.

All of those phenomenons will give you an unseen-before vision. All colors are present. From the blue of boiling slurries, sulfur yellow to red/brown of the mountains and white of fumaroles. With Namafjall in the background, the sight comes from another world. Between Mars and the Moon, rest assured that you will travel far away from Earth by walking by smokes and boilings. A breathtaking spectacle which is worth the ride!
