Fúlipollur mud pool.
Just before you reach the main mud pool area in Krýsuvík, coming from the south, on your right hand side there are two big mud pools. They are called Fúlipollur or Foul pool as they stink. They look man made, but they are not. I find them amazing really, how the landscape can all of a sudden turn into a geothermal mud pool area like this, with two big holes in the ground. The colours here are amazing, red, grey, dark grey, silver and white and you can see the mud boiling. There is steam coming up from the mud pools, this awfully smelling sulphur steam. I hate the smell of it, but love going to these areas as they are like out of this world.Take care as the sulphur is poisonous, and one can get a nasty headache and nausea if too much of it is inhaled. The heat here is 80-100 degrees C, so let us not go too close to the mud pools.
