Bláhylur is a Crater in Southern Highlands close to the better known Landmannalaugar. It is a crater formed after an explosive eruption that took place over 1100 years ago. Bláhylur crater means “blue pool” It has unimagineable contrast of the blue water in the crater and the black lava ash surroundings. As it is deep in the highland, about 600 meters above sea level, one has to take road F208. A big 4×4 WD is a must. This road is usually just open 2 months during the summer months. Bláhylur crater is a wonderful place to visit.
