The earth is still being created…well in Iceland there are many places where you can witness the creation as you stand and watch.
This geothermal region is literarily alive… Mud pots, steam vents, boiling springs, fumaroles and sulphur deposits all around. From mountain range to the plains below you can walk and explore….. you can virtually see into the core of the earth….but don’t breath in too deeply the Sulphur fumes are rather powerful.
Whilst many of us complain about our changing climate, exploring Iceland does make you realise that we do live on a fragile ever changing planet.
