Krafla Lava Fields, Lake Myvatn

(4.6/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Experience the rising steam and bubbling hot lava of a real volcano at Krafla Lava Fields. These fields include the Krafla volcano, one of the most well-known volcanoes in Iceland. A local power station uses the geothermal energy coming from the steam of the volcano. If you would like to hike the 10 km (6.2 mi) around these fields, you can choose from two trail options. Many recommend doing both routes, as they are equally scenic and take only about an hour each. Don't worry about eruptions, though: no dangerous volcanic activity has occurred in this area since 1984. Krafla Lava Fields is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Reykjahlid Edition.

  • 位於米湖附近的景點之一,這里有令人震撼的活火山和美麗的火山口湖,不過要留意一下,天氣都會有所影響行程. 
  • Amazing lava flows , Black fields, we visited this location in a 4 x 4 trip. Amazing to see how powerful nature can be 
  • 我们沿着1号公路往米湖方向行驶的路上右拐进入了了地热发电厂,但是经过发电厂后发现大雪堵住了上山的公路,我们租用的是一辆suv,目测过不去就只好折返了。遗憾!不知大家冬天有登上山顶的吗?
