For further information:
Most of the mountains in the neighbourhood of Myvatn Lake were formed in sub glacial eruptions a few thousand years ago.
The area took several millenniums to form the vegetative status it enjoys today, and which forms part of the scenery all travellers love and admire. Although there have been eruptions in the area in recorded history, the most recent are those are the Myvatn fires of 1724-29 and the Krafla eruption of 1975-84.
Lake Myvatn is the sixth largest lake in Iceland with 37 square kilometres. It is 277 metres over sea level and it has many islands and islets within it.
This tour provides a splendid view of Lake Myvatn and its immediate surroundings.
Lake Myvatn is very shallow and on a clear, calm day one can easily see the lake bed when flying overhead.
The remarkable pseudocraters at Skutustadir can be seen from a unique point of view as well as the renowned explosion crater, Hverfjall, and the crater row, Threngslaborgir.
Also to be seen is the famous high temperature sulfate area of Mount Namafjall and one of Iceland's youngest lava formations at the Krafla volcano area.
