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.
