  • A walk in the park overlooking the Lake but the fake craters are nothing but grass hollows. If you're short on time and you have to choose what to see is one thing to jump without too many regrets.

  • There is a lot of fake Crater Lake landscape. Also, is not prickly, but mosquitoes are really often. It was difficult to speak and do not cover the mouth feel. More views of the crater was overwhelmed by hordes of mosquitoes.

  • This was our first stop in the Lake Myvatn area. These unique pseudo-craters made for a nice walk with a good view of the Lake and surrounding area, but there are a lot of annoying flies so be prepare...  more »

  • Good place to visit and walk around the lake and admiring the pseudo craters. Big parking lot at entrance. We had the whole place to ourselves, but It was raining cats and dogs when we were there, we only managed to stay for quick photo stop. That said, the place is really beautiful and peaceful.
  • Yet another of the many reasons why the southern side of the lake is a better course than sticking with the Ring Road: these little pseudo-craters are fun to hike around. Great photo ops & views over the lake, and the information signs offer fascinating insight into their formation.
  • Kind of boring compared to the other attractions in the close vicinity. The hike is good for children or elderly. Once you've seen one of these craters, you've seen them all. Neat concept but nothing that really demands your time.
  • Interesting formations about lava flowing over and trapping water. Great views of lake Myvatn from the pseudo crater lip..
  • A fun and photogenic trail that goes around small volcanic hills. Make sure to also leave time for Hverir and Hverfjall :)
