This area shows great effects of volcanic eruptions. Heard last erupted in 1984. There is a walk from the parking lot. Viti crater is in this area and is spectacular to see from the rim. We drove to see it in the morning but clouds were so thick, we drove back later when they had cleared and a great view

The lava fields are otherworldly and are an unmissable highlight of the area. The walk take around hour and half and takes in a unique lava field that is unlike anywhere else.

​It's definitely worth visiting the Krafla Lava Fields if you're staying near or in Myvatn. The area has easy, fun and diverse hikes of about 1 hour which take you through different geological landscapes. Plenty of photo opportunities!

15 minute walk in which might be a problem for some. Was on a board walk though but not suitable beyond the start after that for strollers and the like.
Some good views and moss covered rocks amongst the steaming lava.
