What people are saying:

Not far from Lake Myvatn, there is a big black volcano with a parking lot at the foot of the mountain. It takes about 20 minutes to climb a slope from the parking lot to the crater. The whole volcano is black like a coal mountain. , The crater is very large and spectacular. It is estimated that it takes more than 2 hours to walk around it. Standing on the mountain pass, you can also have a bird's eye view of the entire Lake Mývatn.

    Unlike anywhere else, like walking on the moon.

    Easy parking at bottom of the track up, not too strenuous a climb to a totally alien landscape, great views into the crater and of surroundings.

    Crater

    Easy to go up, you can park a car just under it and take a 10 min climb. I recommend t go down on opposite side and walk 20 min to Dimmuborgir, if you are without a car.

    another required stop

    I loved my visit to Hverfjall Valcano in Myvatn. We visited after a snow storm which made the sights even more beautiful in my opinion. The climb to the top was made even more complicated by the wea...
