Definitely somewhere to go when in Lake Myvatn. Interesting to see but be warned it does smell! No toilets on site or cafe/shop but they aren't a long drive away round there anyway.

Interesting walking around the mud pits. Mud pits bubbling & steam venting. Because if the geothermal activity there is a strong smell of sulfur. Neat to see.

This place is out of this world, a sulphuric Martian landscape with bubbling mud pools of all different sizes and visocities, and steaming screaming rubble piles venting steam and gas. An exciting free attraction in expensive Iceland.

Very interesting, can walk all around the mud pots. If you do not like the smell of sulphur might not be the place for you. It is amazing to see the power which is under the ground.

Despite the busloads of tourists and poor weather, we enjoyed our trip to see the mudpots. We were lucky to travel with geologists, but otherwise would consider taking a tour.

Cool spot, with bubbling mud pots. Surrounding landscape is surreal. Strong sulfur smell, as expected. Doesn't take long to see.

The smell of sulphur was quite strong which is to be expected but seeing many types of geothermal activity in one place was awesome.

Hi - a girl from Akureyri here! The boiling mud pools, Hverarönd in Icelandic, are by Lake Mývatn. It takes you around 1 hour and 20 minutes to get there from Akureyri. The GPS coordinates are: 65° 38.466'N, 16° 48.549'W... More
