The mountain range Kverkfjöll (1,764 m) is situated on the north-eastern border of the glacier Vatnajökull in Iceland. With their glacier Kverkjökull, they are to be found between the Vatnajökull and the Dyngjufjöll (s. Askja). The mountains are still active volcanoes. Especially around 1720, they were often erupting and causing glacier runs.

it is not recommended to go to Kverkfjöll without a guide, tourists can easyly get lost, and there are only few months a year you can drive normal car up there.

Under the mountains, there is a very big and hot magma chamber which lead to the originating of glacier caves. In the meantime, they can't be visited any more because they could collapse :(

In a certain distance, there are the hot springs of Hveradalir - very beutyful .. I dont have any picture of it :(

The famous oasis Hvannalindir lies between the Kverkjöll and Askja, very beautyful and so pure
