A truly highlight day!!! Lake Myvatn is at the center of one of the most geologically active and stunningly beautiful areas in Iceland. Bubbling mud pools, volcanic craters, newborn lava fields and grassy shoals teeming with waterfowl are among the many attractions of the area. One of the most bizarre attractions in the region is the mud pits of Haverarond, which literally boil from the heat. Vibrant colors, steaming fumaroles, and the stingy smell of sulfur fills the air. Far cooler are the waters of Viti, which fill its explosive crater with a rich hue of blue that is both captivating and memorable. A+ for the geothermal show today!
