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.
