Fumaroles Namafjall Hverir (Námafjall Hverir), Iceland - Walking around Namafjall is like being on mars. It's a dramatic change in the landscape, creating a small area with a stark red landscape covered with fumaroles and mud pots. Being a high temperature geothermal area, temperatures can get over 200C 1000 meters down. The fumaroles emit steam and gases such as carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrochloric acid, and hydrogen sulfide.
Leirhnjúkur vulcano is shown The Krafla volcano area is next and we pass the power station bearing the same name that relies on geothermal steam energy. We then come to the explosion crater Víti that was formed in 1724 in the Mývatnseldar eruption and from there we will enjoy the view over Leirhnjúkur volcano.
