Interesting places and scenery near Fosshotel Mývatn, North Iceland

Lake Mývatn and Mývatn Nature Baths

Formed during a massive eruption some 2,300 years ago, the surrounds of Lake Mývatn are a hotbed of volcanic activity. Bubbling mud pools, curious lava formations and cone-shaped craters create an eerie and atmospheric landscape, punctuated by the calls of the diverse birdlife that call the lake home. After soaking up the scenery of the lake itself, it’s time to soak your weary limbs in the Mývatn Nature Baths, Northeast Iceland’s answer to the famous Blue Lagoon.

Dettifoss - Europe’s largest waterfall

Another jewel in the crown of the Jökulsárgljúfur canyon is this colossal waterfall, with its intimidating 44m drop and thunderous volume of water that can be seen from several kilometres away – look out for the clouds of spray. Impressive at any time of year, the full impact of Dettifoss is most keenly experienced during spring, after the seasonal melt. If you get the feeling you might have spotted this famous fall before, it featured in the opening scene of Ridley Scott’s 2012 Aliens prequel, Prometheus.

Dimmuborgir lava field

Three marked trails lead through Dimmuborgir varying in length and taking up to an hour each. All of these paths are easy. In addition to shrubs and other vegetation, the Dimmuborgir area displays freestanding lava cliffs and fortresses with grotesque shapes, holes and small caves.
