    Myvatn Lake

    July 5, 2017 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Day Three (part 2): We left Godafoss and headed for Myvatn, an area we choose spontaneously. There is a beautiful lake there that's speckled with tiny islands and also a lot of geothermal features in the area. We visited a lava field filled with formations that are so unique, we read the only other place to see things like them are on the bottom of the ocean. After that we hiked to the top of a crater formed after a volcano eruption, crawled inside a hot pool cave (too hot to get in the water), and made dinner at a scenic pull-off on the side of the road. Then we found our campsite and took a swim in the Myvatn Natural Bath, a geothermal mineral pool that made Suzanne gag from the smell of sulfur, but was the thickest, smoothes water we've ever waded in.Read more
