  • Not very special compared to the other places like this, but the area below (lava fields) is definately a must see. Parking lots aplenty.

  • The way to Askja is very beautifull. In august '21 still snow on the last part to go on foot. It feels like you are in another world.

  • Nice
  • Magnificent view of the craters. One can can have a swim in the Viti. The drive in 4x4 to get there is an experience in itself.
  • We skydived into this area. Sooooo beautiful!
  • Nice sky
  • Date: 16/09/21 A long 3 hours drive by 4x4 to Askja with at least 3 river crossing! Only recommended if you have a day to spend when visiting Lake Mývatn. Challenging drive but fun. Sadly the weather wasn't that great when we did this trip. Otherwise it would have been worth the long drive.
