Lake Mývatn, located in northern Iceland near the city of Akureyri (Iceland’s second largest) is a popular destination for bird-watchers, thanks to the large numbers of waterfowl and other birds that visit the summer. But the area has other appeals as well, and makes a great addition to any northern Iceland itinerary.

The lake can easily be driven around in a day, and is close by to several other notable sites in the area, including Hverfjall Crater, a 2500-year-old, crater; Dimmuborgir, an area of lava caves and pillars with numerous hiking trails; and the Vindbelgjarfjall mountain. Krafla, a volcano that erupted from 1975-1984 is another popular attraction in the area, but the main draw for many – aside from the natural beauty of the lake – is the Mývatn Nature Baths.
