Hverfjall

A huge crater you can enjoy from its edge and take a look into. To walk around the edge will take you an hour, that’s how huge it is! On one side, you can enjoy the view into the crater and on the other side you can see the Dimmuborgir lava fields, Skútustaðagígar pseudo craters, and quite simply, the whole surrounding area of Lake Mývatn
