Every other day the Environmental Agency have to send people to remove it. Among the things recently drawn in the crater are a giant penis. Davíð Hansson, specialist at the agency says this has been particularly bothersome this summer.
“We respond every time and comb over the writing or drawings but they don’t disappear until it rains.”
Below you can see the post put up by the agency to tell people to please stop disturbing the natural environment.

Almost daily, people walk into the Hverfjall crater in North Iceland and draw some kind of image or write in it.
A number of people were surprised to see a tent in the traffic island next to Harpa concert hall in the centre of Reykjavik this morning. By noon the tent had gone.
Traffic in that area is very heavy so it’s not the calmest spot to spend the night. When Mbl.is contacted the staff at Harpa they said they couldn’t do anything about the tent as the traffic island does not belong to the building.
The Reykjavik Metropolitan Police, asked about the tent, said that camping is illegal in Reykjavik except in specified camp sites. People are not fined for camping illegally but they are told to leave.
