Kerlingarfjöll Highland Resort
Kerlingarfjöll Highland Resort Kerlingarfjöll are one of the natural pearls of Iceland, located in the highlands, between the Glaciers Hofsjökull and Langjökull. The Kerlingarfjöll area, being area of approx. 100 KM2 is a mountain cluster, rising 500 - 700 M above the surrounding central highlands plains. The mountains are standing on a large system of calderas, which was active some 70.000 - 300.000 years ago. The area can be described as a cluster of rugged mountains with steep hills and sharp lines, that due to their age have not been affected by the eroding forces of the nature. Within the mountain cluster there are geothermal areas that are amongst the larger in Iceland. Rhyolite and obsidian are types of rocks that characterize the appearance of some of the mountains, making the area extremely colourful and heaven for those who wish to hike or spend their time in landscape not frequently seen elsewhere.
Kerlingarfjöll, Geothermal area in the highlands
Kerlingarfjöll, Geothermal area in the highlands Kerlingarfjöll (1,477 m (4,846 ft)) is a mountain range in Iceland situated in the Highlands of Iceland near the Kjölur highland road. The volcanic origin of these mountains is evidenced by the numerous hot springs and rivulets in the area. And indeed, they are part of a large volcano system of 100km² (38.6 square mile). The volcanoes of the range are tuyas. The earth is shimmering red in this area because of the volcanic rhyolite stone the mountains are composed of. Minerals that have emerged from the hot springs also color the ground yellow, red and green.

Grænihryggur (Green Backbone) - Fjallabak Nature Reserve.
Grænihryggur (Green Backbone) - Fjallabak Nature Reserve. Grænihryggur (Green Backbone) - Fjallabak Nature Reserve. The Fjallabak region takes its name from the numerous wild and rugged mountains with deeply incised valleys, which are found there. The topography of the Torfajökull, central volcano found within the Fjallabak Nature Reserve, is a direct result of the region being the largest rhyolite (liparite) area in Iceland and the largest geothermal area (after Grímsvötn in Vatnajökul). The Torfajökul central volcano is an active volcanic system, but is now in a declining fumarolic stage as exemplified by numerous fumaroles and hot springs. The hot pools at Landmannalaugar are but one of many manifestations of geothermal activity in the area, which also tends to alter the minerals in the rocks, causing the beautiful colour variations from red and yellow to blue and green, a good example being Brennisteinsalda. Geologists believe that the Torfajökull central volcano is a caldera, the rim being Háalda, Sudurnámur, Nordur Barmur, Torfajökull, Kaldaklofsfjöll and Ljósártungur.
