Silicon Fumarole in the Highlands of Iceland
Silicon Fumarole in the Highlands of Iceland Hveravellir (Hot Spring Fields.) is an interesting geothermal area in the central highlands of Iceland. It is one of the pearls of Iceland, a nature reserve 650 meters above sea-level. After driving through the vast, barren highlands it is so lovely to encounter such an oasis. There was an old route through this area, which is referred to in the Viking Sagas with the first references being from around year 900. This road is called Kjalvegur road. There is a geothermal area here, which has been called the most beautiful geothermal area in Iceland. Here is also a lovely hot pool in which one can bathe. It is awesome sitting in this hot pool in the wilderness of Iceland, in between two of Iceland's glaciers, Langjökull and Hofsjökull glaciers.

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.
View at Hengill Volcano
View at Hengill Volcano Hengill volcano is situated in the southwest of Iceland, to the south of Þingvellir. The volcano covers an area of about 100 km². The volcano is still active, evidenced by its numerous hot springs and fumaroles, but the last eruption occurred approximately 2,000 years ago. The volcano is an important source of energy for the south of the country, which is captured at the Nesjavellir power station and the Hellisheiði power station (approximately 11 km southwest of Nesjavellir). The area with its mountains and hot springs is well suited for hiking and there are a lot of hiking trails. The small town of Hveragerði with its multitude of hot springs is also part of the Hengill area.
Landscape from Hrafntinnusker
Landscape from Hrafntinnusker A large obsidian field located in the highlands of Iceland, just east of the infamous Mount Hekla. Hrafntinna is the Icelandic name for obsidian... Obsidian is black and glassy, and forms when rhyolite cools very quickly. The surroundings of this area are not only colourful, but also filled with many hot springs, steam vents, boiling mud pits and ice caves. Despite the hard ice, there is actually geothermal activity happening under the surface so it is not recommended to enter the caves.
Gunnuhver geothermal hotspring and geyser
Gunnuhver geothermal hotspring and geyser Gunnuhver measures 65 feet across, and is constantly spewing dense, cloudy steam at a scalding 570˚F. It is unique from Iceland’s other hot springs in that it is entirely seawater, due to its proximity to the ocean. The surrounding rocks are impressive as well, colored dazzling oranges and blues from unusual minerals. But its natural majesty isn’t the only reason Gunnuhver is famous. It has a ghost story as well, which gave the hot spring its name. The hot spring takes its name from the old woman (Gunnuhver translates to “Gunn’s hot spring”). Some say that Gudrun’s ghost didn’t fall into the boiling pit, but that she’s hanging on to the edge for all eternity. The steam is constant and thick enough that it would certainly obscure any ghostly figures in or outside Gunnuhver.
Sogaselsdalur in the mountain of Reykjanes
Sogaselsdalur in the mountain of Reykjanes Sogaselsdalur in the mountains of Reykjanes is an old almost cooled down geothermal valley where you still can see all the clay on the hill side. It’s not recommended to walk in the valley itself as the clay gets stuck under your sole. This is a beautiful hidden Gem. Reykjanes. Iceland
