Thought to have formed during the last glacial period of the Pleistocene, better known as the ice age, Kerlingafjöll are considered to be one of the most curious geographical phenomenons in Iceland. Geologists do not agree on its current state of activity as the area shows all the characteristics of a central volcanic system but has yet not shown any recorded activity during the Holocene. One of the most obvious hints of volcanic activity are the geothermal areas where some of the highest temperatures of geysers have been recorded in Iceland, reaching up to 150 degree celcius.
