Fjallabak nyrðri. Reserve region in the Highlands of Iceland
Fjallabak nyrðri. Reserve region in the Highlands of Iceland Fjallabak Nature Reserve was established in 1979. The Nature reserve is 47.000 hectares and is over 500 meters above see level. The land is mountainous, sculptured by volcanoes and geothermal activity, covered by lavas, sands, rivers and lakes. 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 Torfajokull, central volcano found within the Fjallabak Nature Reserve, is a direct result of the region being the largest rhyolite area in Iceland and the largest geothermal area (after Grimsvotn in Vatnajokull).

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.

Hrafntinnusker
Hrafntinnusker Hrafntinnusker Geothermal Area is 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.
