Directions to Krýsuvík Seltun

The thermal area, Krýsuvík Seltun, was formed by the gap between the European and North American tectonic plates. It smells like rotten eggs (hydrogen sulphide).

You can visit the area by wooden walkways that run between the bubbling and boiling mud pools. The ground is coloured green, yellow and red.

  • Special places we would have missed otherwise ... We have just returned from a 16-day Iceland tour. The travel book was very helpful, we had downloaded and printed. The PDF travel guide helped us to find nice places. Very organized itinerary with a road map which listed all sites. TOP!
