Krafla

4.5/5
15 Reviews
Volcano
Recommended Sightseeing Time: 1-2 hours
Address: Mývatn,Iceland

What people are saying:

Krafla Volcano is a crater formed by a super giant volcano. It was formed by the collapse of the top of the volcanic cone without the support of underground lava. The area visited is actually the inside of the caldera, which makes people feel more like flat ground. Along the way, you will pass a sulphurous landform and the smell of rotten eggs in the air.
