The northern slope of Mt. Bæjarfjall is covered over and over with geothermal features in bright colors. Starting from the valley floor in the north you first come across a small creek tinted in bright yellow, orange and red shades by pinhole fumaroles in the walls. This is what Icelanders call a Rauðþúfur (red puff).
