Silicon Fumarole at Hveravellir - Highlands of Iceland
Silicon Fumarole at Hveravellir - Highlands of Iceland Hveravellir is a unique nature reserve situated on the Kjolur route in the middle of the west highlands between the glaciers Hveravellir is one of the most beautiful geothermal areas in the world with smoking fumarolees and beautifully shaped with sky blue, boiling water. It is a special experience to have a look around, whether it is in the summer or winter. One of our best known outlaws, Fjalla-Eyvindur (Eyvindur of the Mountains) who lived in Iceland from 1714-1783, lived at Hveravellir for some time with his wife Halla. Fjalla-Eyvindur was an outlaw for 20 years and lived in the wilderness of Iceland with Halla. I have visited more of his hiding places in Iceland, f.ex. the one at Herðubreiðarlindir oasis.
