Here we have another hot spot: Krýsuvík-Seltún
Hot water is coming out of the ground. Lots of hot pools, fumaroles and a strange smell like rotten eggs.
These hot spots are part of the active volcano Krýsuvík. The thermal sources were used for producing heating energy, but the geo-thermal plant exploded a few years ago. Other geo-thermal plants are still in use and produce heating energy as well as electrical power.
I’d recommend strictly staying on the paths, when visiting this location or any other destinations in the high temperature areas.
