Mt. Namafjall (Namaskard), Lake Myvatn

(4.7/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Gigantic mud craters surrounded by sulfur crystals of many different colors, bubbling mud pots, and steam pots make up the landscape of Mt. Namafjall (Namaskard). Follow a small hiking trail, which goes up to the mountain and then returns to the highway and the parking lot. The soil in the area is almost barren due to erosion and the sulfur fumes. If you get cold and tired, soak in thermal baths on the other side of the mountain. To avoid injuries and burns, stay on the track. Bear in mind that the fumes can be harmful.

  • This is an easy to reach geothermal area which offers all but geysers: steam vents, mud pots, colorful ground, ... You can just get off the main road and then directly walk to every feature. Big mess ...  more »
  • of smell of suffer and see the important fumeroles. Weird feeling to hear a seething come from the Earth. Arriving in the Highlands and in March, we can see the mountain from a distance because it is the only one to not be snowy :)

  • Magical place, it seems incredible that all that seismic activity is so close. It is worth going to see it.
