Mývatn Travel Guide


Plan Your Mývatn Vacation

You could spend at least a day exploring this superbly natural area influenced by active geology; a fissure eruption occurred here in 1984. The area's "false craters" were formed when hot lava of ancient eruptions ran over marshland, causing steam jets to spout up, forming small cones.
