We stooped our car and walked on the lava fields just on the moss. The moss were so soft so you can cuddle and take a nap!

Strange landscape, looked like a different planet. We only drove through with a couple of stops but probably worth giving it more time and go walking if you can.

Well worth a visit. If you're prepared to walk or climb you'll get the full benefits of what is in the area. Beautiful and humbling at just how powerful nature can be.

Gorgeous. We could have stayed all day taking photos and walking the different paths. Loved the walk to the Church. Awesome fall foliage.

The Krafla Lava Fields is so vast that it seems never ending while driving on Road 1 in the middle of it.

No words to describe it or pictures that can show what you feel and what you see there. You feel like you are on another planet or on the moon. Definitely a breathtaking place that must be visited.
