Myvatn Iceland Video - Landscapes of North Iceland

Come along with us as we explore the landscapes of Myvatn.

As we continued on our journey traveling around the Ring Road of Iceland, we spent day six and seven in the Myvatn region in North Iceland. In our Myvatn Iceland video, let us show you around some of the best natural attractions in the region: Namafjall Hverir Geothermal Region, Dimmuborgir lava field, Grjotagja cave, Dettifoss, and Krafla (Viti Crater).

We stayed in the most adorable guesthouse overlooking Lake Myvatn:

Just down the road from our guesthouse, we visited Namafjall Hverir geothermal area. The landscape looked more like Mars than Earth. With its bubbling pots and steaming vents, it’s not to be missed. You might notice a lot of midge flies everywhere in front of the camera lens. These little bugs are everywhere. After all, Lake Myvatn is named for these midge flies. There’s nothing you can do but bring a scarf for your face and try not to eat too many of them.

The Dimmuborgir lava field was even closer to our guesthouse. These massive rock formations are quite intriguing. There are several hiking trails around the lava rocks. Definitely check this place out – it’s the only spot in the world quite like it.

Grjótagjá is a small cave that used to be a popular bathing place. The water inside the cave is a vibrant shade of blue. Scenes from Game of Thrones were filmed here, and guests are welcome to climb down into the cave to check it out (though bathing here is now discouraged).

Dettifoss is the most powerful waterfall in Europe. We weren’t able to get too much video of it as we left our GoPro back at our cottage, and it was incredibly misty. Hike up to the observation deck for the best view, but don’t forget to bring a rain jacket!

At Krafla, there’s a huge blue-green crater lake that you can hike around. It’s a very surreal and colorful landscape that you’ve got to see with your own eyes. We’ve also captured some exciting aerial footage with our drone for you to enjoy from home.

    This is a part of Iceland that I was disappointed to miss out on when I visited. Looks fantastic and while I had seen most of these spots before, I’d never heard of Krafla which looks awesome. Great drone footage by the way! #WeekendWanderlust

    Amazing photos and video too. Krafla View is amazing but Dettifoss I liked the most. The rainbow in the picture of Dettifoss looks really great.

    You are so right when you say it looks more like outer space. Such a strong contrasting land, with so much going on. Beautiful bur rugged at the same time. Not altogether different from the interior of Australia! Just beautiful and I really enjoyed watching the video. The guest house looked pretty good two – very modern !

    Breathtaking. Simply incredible. What are midge flies, exactly? Do they bite or sting like mosquitos? The landscapes are unusual and unique. Iceland is on my list of places to visit, and now adding Myvatan. Great video.

    Next time we visit Iceland I want to explore the top of the Island. I had read about how beautiful it was but we just didn’t get there.
