This was my favorite place in Iceland. We got lucky with the weather and were able to visit Namaskard, Krafla area: Krafla lava fields and crater, and the nature baths. It is a magical place and everything is close by. Possible to do everything in 1-2 days. I didn't want to leave!
Not to miss!!!
We spent 2 days in that area, but we could have spend more. The lake is beautiful and there are many attractions around. From there wr headed to Askja. It took us 3.5 hours to reach the place with a good 4wd car.
We were advised not to miss this place, but in comparison for instance with the glacier Jokusarlon, whale watching, geysers, Gullfoss waterfall and other places the lake Myvatn can be skipped. Moskytoes, very bad opportunities to eat, go further a bit and stay in
We spent a whole day in the Myvatn area, and it was hardly enough to see it all. Our favorite places were:
1. Lake Myvatn - spooky and calm on this day
2. Dimmuborgir - a Fairyland of volcanic spires
3. Hverfell - an easily accessible cinder cone volcano
4. Grjotagja - a multi-colored, sulfurous hydrothermal springs area
