  • Actually is only to a few lava pile in Lake Mývatn, they look but really great, at least in the winter. The walk from the parking lot to 30 minutes and is very beautiful. (I thought the Icelanders have no forest until on Egilstadir...) There are only 2 outhouses at the parking lot, and they are even closed in the winter.

  • Nice trail walking and view of the lake. Good break from the waterfalls. Lots of bugs/nats/mosquitos buzzing around your head even in 5°C  more »
  • Höfði was the most beautiful stop on the shores of Lake Myvatn I saw. Columns of lava that seem to emerge from the Lake and is the vegetation on its banks, as the ruins of a castle or old building. Parking is on the road to 848. Unlike other places of Mývatn, not touched me see it saturated with visitors in summer; If I had 7 people were many. Parking part of a path that leads directly to the lake shore. 10 minutes are enough to explore it, but better take your time to appreciate the beauty of the place. You can later, find volcanic rock formations in Dimmuborgir, but not with the same charm of Höfði, which combines water, vegetation and rock.

  • Only stopped to see the waterfall which is gorgeous and allows you to get close for incredible pictures. Friendly workers at the gift shop as well
  • Beautiful walk with really nice view
  • Rocky promontory which reaches into Lake Myvatn. Nice trails to explore the lakes, coves, inlets & unusual lava formations on and offshore.
  • stunning
  • An easy trail where you can explore lava columns, and also be around the lake. Note that the pin on the map is actually the forest, but we visited an area just next to the forest, which I also think goes by the same name. If your time around Myvatn is limited, I suggest you prioritize Hverfjall and Hverir.
