Mt. Namafjall (Namaskard), Lake Myvatn
(4.7/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • Vast lava field with boiling mud pools and steam vents. Through various wooden walking bridges and mini scaffolding you can PAL to PAL. Try to stay on the paths because it is very smooth. You can also take a look at the enormous sulphur mountain that surrounds the pools. Take a picture while you're right by the steam of a whistling stoomgat. Once at the surface it cools off significantly making it not dangerous.

  • Like the moon.
  • It is an awesome experience walking around here, between solfataras, lava fields and warm Earth under your feet. It's like being on the Moon, and at the same time as if the volcano was about to erupt. Experience not to be missed.
