Steam Clouds over Gunnuhver Steam Vent

Gunnuhver is named after a female ghost who had caused great disturbance until a priest set a trap for her and she fell into the spring. The boiling hot steam reflects her screams and power. Gunnuhver stands in the heart of the Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark where the North Atlantic ridge rises from the ocean, you find 100 different craters and lava fields, bird cliffs, high geothermal areas, black sand beaches, The Bridge Between Continents, geothermal power plants, and lighthouses.
