I’ve been saving this one up as my “must-see” Icelandic attraction. This is another one that people have wondered is real after seeing my photos. It must rank up there as being one of the most “unearthly places on earth” – if you suddenly woke up here you really would think you were either on another planet or in hell!The noise of steam being forced up from underground, the stink of the sulphur, the bubbling mud, the scorched earth, it is probably the one place I would take someone who hasn’t been to Iceland before to really blow their mind! All these factors make it not the most pleasant or scenic place you could visit but it’s so unbelievable you can overlook these things.
I know I’ve said this before but it amazes me that Iceland doesn’t charge money to see something like this. Driving past it again at around 7:00 pm there were zero people there. How can this be?
