The Krafla area is one of the most interesting areas by Lake Mývatn. This is where the tectonic plates meet and is therefore a hotbed of seismic activity.
There you can see:
- Red, black, grey, blue and white lava.
- A beautiful geothermal area.
- A great variety of interesting rare geothermal phenomena.
Access to the Krafla area is easy in the summertime but can be difficult and even dangerous in other seasons due to snow- and weather conditions. Never the less the Krafla area is seldom as beautiful as when the snow has covered most of the ground and you see the pink hills, black, grey, and red warm lava standing out of the snow.
If there is a lot of snow and conditions allow Mývatn Activity -Hike&Bike- will bring snowshoes and hiking poles for you so we can safely hike in the area. We will get you ready to have an enjoyable time with us in a wonderful setting.
