About lake Mývatn area: IMG_8352-24

An undisputed gem of the northeast, Mývatn (mee-vahtnh) lake and the surrounding is starkly beautiful, an otherworldly landscape of boiling sulfur mud pools, weird lava formations, steaming fumaroles and volcanic craters.

The Mývatn basin sits squarely on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the violent geological character of the area has produced an astonishing landscape unlike anywhere else in the country; this is the Iceland you’ve always imagined.
