The Nmafjall high-temperature geothermal area lies within the fissure swarm of the Krafla volcanic system and is located north-east from the Lake Myvatn. It is a very active geothermal area and east of the mountain Nmafjall (you can see it in the background), in the area called Hverarnd there are many bubbling mud-pools and old steam drill holes. Since much of the ground is covered with yellow sulfur deposits and other chemicals, the landscape is great to take pictures, especially when the light is favourable like it was during my visit. There is also a signed track among the pools, leading to the top of the mountain.
