Explore the Krafla area, known as a hotbed of seismic activity and one of the most exciting sites around Lake Mývatn. If you are fascinated by geothermal phenomena or volcanic activity, then this is the perfect destination to visit. You will love to hike in this area given the beauty of the landscapes as well as the magnificent formations. You will be provided with hike equipment to ensure that you have an easy time.

What to expect?

  • 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:

  • The latest eruption site in the Mývatn area where it last erupted in 1984

  • Red, black, grey, blue and white lavaRed, black, grey, blue and white lava.

  • A beautiful geothermal area.

  • A great variety of interesting rare geothermal phenomena.

  • Leirhnjúkur and Krafla Volcano

  • 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, guides will bring snowshoes and hiking poles for you so we can safely hike in the area. We will hike the Leirhnjúkur area and go to the top where we will enjoy the view of the whole Caldera. On the way there we will see different colors in the lava and steam coming up all around us as we pass through the geothermal area. We will get you ready to have an enjoyable time with us in a wonderful setting.
