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).
Lakagígar Craters from air
Lakagígar Craters from air Laki or Lakagígar (Craters of Laki) is a volcanic fissure in the south of Iceland, not far from the canyon of Eldgjá and the small village of Kirkjubæjarklaustur. Lakagígar is the correct name, as Laki mountain itself did not erupt, as fissures opened up on each side of it. Lakagígar is part of a volcanic system centered on the volcano Grímsvötn and including the volcano Þórðarhyrna. It lies between the glaciers of Mýrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull, in an area of fissures that run in a southwest to northeast direction

Eldvörp - Still hot after more than 800 years
Eldvörp - Still hot after more than 800 years Eldvörp is a row of scoria and spatter cones formed in the Reykjanes Fires 1210-1240 AD in the Svartsengi volcanic system. The craters lie in a NE-SW trending row, extending from the south coast about 10 km inland, with the north end 2 km west of the Blue Lagoon. The lava emitted from the crater row is one of the most voluminous Holocene lava flows on the Reykjanes Peninsula, covering c. 20 km2.

The age is not well known, but judging from the soil cover, gravel deposits covering it and the effects of weathering on its surface, it might be 7000-8000 years old.
Stóriburkni - Dryopteris filix-mas
Stóriburkni - Dryopteris filix-mas Eldvorp is a 10 km long crater row to the northwest of Grindavik. It has several big craters with extensive thermal activity within and outside one of them, where a great deal of steam of about 280°C escapes. In older days, women from Grindavík baked bread in the warm steam and took the trail called "Brauðstígur" or Breadtrail up there from Grindavík.
