Hveravellier - Campsite and Fumaroles Jun 29, 2008
I have to say that I was disappointed here!

We stopped at the ranger station at Hveravellier as we had seen the pictures of this geysir and it looked pretty spectacular!

However the campsite facilities are poor - very very basic and we had a somewhat noisy sleep due to the large camp of french tourists playing guitars and being extremely noisy on the tiny patch of ground that served as a campsite!

And it is small!!!!

Hveravellier felt like a bit of a swizz anyhow! On all the books we had read they showed this big geysir blowing steam and whistling away (Hveravellier means literally howling geysir)

well ... lets say ... the magazine cover photographers are good with a lense...... this tiny(!) geysir does whistle away but its not very big!

The hot spring was packed and busy and not really welcoming in the strong icy wind that was blowing!

The guides are friendly and useful for info but the site itself is busy - but about the only stop on the F35 if your heading south!

yep thats Hveravellier........ the geysir that shrunk in the wash!

not really important if your not passing to be honest.
