List item

Mývatn (meaning Midge Water) is a shallow eutrophic lake situated in an area of active volcanism in the north of Iceland, not far from Krafla volcano. The lake and its surrounding wetlands have an exceptionally rich fauna of waterbirds, as well as billions of annoying midges that can be found there in summer.

The area is also home of Myvatn Nature Baths, a spectacular natural spa that is a must visit for anyone heading north.
