From towering cinder cones to black, moss-covered lava sculptures, Lake Myvatn does not disappoint. There is a very scenic drive encircling the lake. Beautiful and well-worth the short detour. So pretty at sunset.

When we visited the entire lake and surrounds were both frozen and snow-covered. A truly stunning area of natural beauty.

When we were there most of the lake was frozen. With that Icelandic horse drag racing was being held. This is a fun competition to watch. The horses run a measured one kilometer course and are timed. Fastest one wins.
We hiked through the crater field and had a great view of the surrounding area.
