The lake contains over 50 islands and islets, mostly pseudpocraters formed when molten lava flowed into the lake.

Hverir is full of fumaroles, small geysers, sulfur-covered surfaces, multicolored slopes and water and mud pools. Smell of sulfuric gases is very strong. Geothermal power stations is located nearby.
