Hverir Tours

star-5
31 Reviews
Hverir
With its gurgling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and plumes of volcanic rock, it’s easy to see why the Hverir geothermal area was chosen as a filming location for HBO’s Game of Thrones. It’s a mesmerizing sight, with the pockmarked terrain bubbling with silver-gray mud and steaming fumaroles, and the stench of sulfur omnipresent.

The Basics
Located just below the Krafla caldera and a short ride from Mývatn Lake, Hverir makes a popular stop on North Iceland’s Diamond Circle sightseeing route. Most tours to Hverir set out from Akureyri by 4WD and combine a visit to the mud pools with nearby attractions such as the Godafoss waterfall, Dettifoss waterfall, or the Mývatn thermal baths. At Hverir, a network of roped walkways and viewing platforms make it easy to take in the highlights, set against a backdrop of the looming Námafjall Mountain.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • There is no entrance fee to visit Hverir.
  • Ground temperatures can reach up to 400°F (205°C) in the region, so only walk in areas designated by your guide and don’t be tempted to go exploring on your own.
  • There is no cell phone coverage or Wi-Fi at Hverir.
  • Due to the challenging natural terrain, Hverir is not wheelchair-accessible and may be difficult for those with limited mobility.

How to Get There
Hverir is located in the Mývatn region of North Iceland and can be reached by car, via a signposted gravel track off the main road to Krafla. The closest international airport is in Akureyri, about a 1.5-hour drive away.

When to Get There
It is usually possible to visit the Hverir geothermal area all year round, although access is occasionally restricted in winter, depending on weather conditions.

Game of Thrones in Iceland
The Hverir mud pools are one of a number of filming locations around Iceland used for Game of Thrones. Since season 1, Hverir, along with the Svínafellsjӧkull glacier, Lake Mývatn, and the Vik Mountains, have been used to portray the otherworldly landscapes “north of the wall,” while season 4 saw appearances by Icelandic landmarks such as the Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hot spring. For those who want to learn more or follow in the footsteps of their favorite characters, Games of Thrones tours take in the most memorable filming spots.
