What Else Can’t You Miss In Iceland Besides The Aurora Borealis?

The alternative beauty that makes people fascinated.

Located about 90 kilometers east of Akureyri, Iceland’s Lake Mývatn is the fourth largest lake in Iceland and is presumed to have formed around 2,300 years ago during a major volcanic eruption. The area is still very active, with the neighboring Krafla volcano last erupting in 1984.

If it were me, I would recommend Mývatn, located about 90 kilometers east of Akureyri, Iceland’s fourth-largest lake, which is presumed to have been formed around 2300 years ago by a major volcanic eruption.

Reykjahlid is a popular place for Mývatn tourism, with tour groups, tourist service centers, accommodation areas, gas stations, and the famous geothermal power plant nearby, where various geothermal landscapes can be seen from time to time, such as boiling mud, steam vents, geysers, hot spring lakes, etc.

Recommended attractions in the Rice Lake area:

1. Godafoss Waterfall

Located in the north of Iceland, along the No.1 traffic circle, it is 12 meters high and 30 meters wide, one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland. It is said that when Iceland declared Christianity as the orthodox religion of Iceland, the Norse gods and goddesses of the previous faith were thrown into the waterfall, and since then, the waterfall has been called Godafoss.

2. Dimmuborgir

Formed more than 2,300 years ago, a landscape formed by the flow of lava from a volcanic eruption is dotted with various volcanic lava cave formations, making it like a maze, also called a lava maze, and covered with lush vegetation around. Many deepening stories with mystery are based here, and “Game of Thrones” was also set here.

One of the most famous attractions of the Dark Castle is the Lava Arch, located at the highest point of a volcanic lava pile, where many people take pictures.

3. Hverfjall

Formed in an eruption about 2,500 years ago, it is a ring-shaped volcano with a crater diameter of about 1 km. If you want to get a close glimpse of it, you can hike up to the top of the volcanic ring and walk around the crater, you can enjoy the view of the crater from different angles, and you can also overlook the whole Mývatn.
