Petit Futé's opinion on HVERFJALL

Plate millesim 2022

Hverfjall is probably the most beautiful of the many volcanoes scattered around Mývatn. It looks like a very high pile of gravel... It is an explosive volcano culminating at 420 m, with black sand slopes and 2 500 years old. Two steep paths, with a difference in level of 100 m, lead to the summit, another one goes around the crater whose diameter is a little more than 1 km. From up there, there is a superb view of the lake. Count on 45 minutes to an hour to go around it (3.2 km), depending on whether you take a break or not. By car, access via route 848, south of Reykjahlíð.

A FAIRE ABSOLUMENT ! Après 10-15 minutes de voiture sur une route en cailloux, on arrive au pied du volcan. Compter 20-30 minutes d'ascension (facile-moyen), pour admirer une vue fantastique au sommet ! Pour faire le tour du volcan, il faut compter 3,5 km! Magique !!!
