  • Most people would have visit this place during summer but we visited during winter and it was covered with snow with little walking path, however it is still worth the visit to see a different season ...  more »
  • On the southeastern part of the Lake, stop for a moment of rest to contemplate the Lake and the special geological formations.

  • From the parking lot can get two sides on and we went counterclockwise and then you come back to the water in some places and you have nice views of the park and here are enough birds to see and photograph.

  • Amazing place, I think it's a park but it feels way cooler than just that, especially in the winter when we went. Really pretty views of the lake, some cool rock structures, maybe a pond in the middle of it but it was frozen over, so I'm not sure. If you've got about an hour, I would definitely recommend a stroll around here.
  • This is a nice little park area, less for hiking but more for a relaxed walk and to take in the nature. There are many branching paths but due to the small size of the park it is impossible to get lost. What I liked about this place is the fact that it offers a bit of variety in terms of vegetation. The paths are separated by thick bushed and trees, which makes it feel a bit more private. In short, this is a good place for a romantic walk with your significant other :) What is particularly impressive are the rock formations in the lake which are visible from the edges of the park.
  • A great little walk around a small lake and some interesting rock formations. Seems to be a bit of a bird hangout too.
  • Very nice for a stroll. Some wonderful views when you take the path to right. Unfortunately the amount of midges at the lake shore made it impossible to really enjoy that part. Especially after I breathed a mouthful of the critters. We learned our lesson and all other trips to the lake shore we used our flynet.
  • Beautiful lake in Myvatn area.
