Very diverse area in the north of Iceland. You can easily spend aroun 3 days here going to the different sights around the lake, the lagoon for a swim, whale watching in Husavik and other sights in the area.

Lake Myvatn is the country's fourth largest natural lake. Almost 9.5 km long and 6.5 km wide, the volcanic Lake Myvatn area covers an area of 37 square km. The lake's surroundings show great variety in landscapes and amazing geological formations. This area is extremely volcanic. Unlike anything in Iceland , the Lake Myvatn area isn’t a place with trees and glaciers, it’s truly the remnants of geothermal activity and volcanic eruption. The place is stunning with magical atmosphere.

The area have very well defined pathways and ask people not to walk out of them, but not everyone understand the signs. However, it is a nice place to take some snacks use our legs and see some interesting birds while walking around the craters

Just a short drive from Akureyi, this is easily done as a day trip. We marveled at stone structures, bubbling pools and craters. There are many hikes available of varying lengths. A must is the Myvatn Nature bath.

We stopped on Lake Myvatn and took a short hike. The formations in the lake were absolutely beautiful.
