Private Krafla Wilderness Walk from Lake Mývatn

The Otherworldly Scene of Lake Mývatn Lava Fields

The Private Krafla Wilderness Walk tour is an easy hiking tour exploring the Krafla lava fields, created by the massive volcanic eruptions between 1975 and 1984. The Lake Mývatn area, both the nature and the society, are heavily influenced by the eruptions. The newly created lava fields give a unique opportunity to see first hand how geological activities sculpt the landscape. Our expert local guide will also give you a rare insight on how the eruptions influenced the people living in the area, being only a few kilometers from their backyards. Having this tour private lets you control the pace and have more flexibility during your tour.

The hike is slow through a rough terrain and we take our time enjoying the raw nature and panoramic scenery.
