"Beautiful volcanic geology with practically no vegetation cover. Features includes calderas, ash cones,steaming volcanic vents, cinders, pumice, various types of lava flows. Probably the most moon-like of the field areas."

Here you find a growing list of places in and around the rough borders of the Ódáðahraun. Few have travelled there in the past, that means many place do not have a name at all. Some names are given just recently in the last decades. Some old names may have been forgotten. This list is not complete yet, but I work on it...
Please do not hesitate to contact me in case of any question or if you have a missing place name :-)
