Blue Pool Hveravellir

Home » Prints » Landscape Prints » Blue Pool Hveravellir

Bláhver is a geothermal pool at Hveravellir in the center of Iceland. Location info. Hveravellir is a geothermal oasis in the middle of a vast stony desert which is normally inaccessible. All my trips to Hveravellir were in the Summer during the night.

Bláhver (or Blue Pool) is the most photographed of the hot-springs.  The pool is like a 6 feet dragon’s eye of blue.

Bláhver was a beautiful shape with white minerals lining the rim like a fancy cocktail glass. You wouldn’t recognise this pool today. The building of a hotel at the site caused a change in the configuration. It now looks like one of those aging actors who had too much botox.

Nature of Hveravellir

Sitting among the hot springs at Hveravellir when the ground shakes feels like you are on a volcano. The fragile version of earth’s crust trembles as the steam pressure builds and falls. Visitors can soak in the hot bath which naturally stays very warm.  Most of the geology is actually brittle and fragile.  The mineral deposits that bejewel the ground are diminishing under thunderous tourist’s feet.
