Krafla Wilderness Walk

The Otherworldly Scene of Lake Mývatn Lava Fields

The Krafla Wilderness Walk tour is a small group 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.

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