Hveravellir hot spring on Kjölur plateau, Iceland

  • Hveravellir hot spring on Kjölur plateau, Iceland

    Some spots on Earth simply look unearthly. The Hveravellir Nature Reserve on the Kjölur plateau in central Iceland certainly fits that description. Dotted with hot springs, the rugged terrain here calls to adventurers from around the world. An ancient trail across the plateau called Kjalvegur hinn forni (Old Kjalvegur) passes through elevations high enough, and with such little precipitation, that it’s considered a cold desert. Nevertheless, horseback riders, cars, and people trudge across the path. All that effort deserves a reward, so a dip in one of the hot springs should fit the bill.
