Skútustaðir

An impressive chain of volcanic craters

The Skútustaðagígar pseudo-craters are located in the Lake Mývatn area. The craters themselves are not magma-producing volcanic vents but were formed by gas explosions when boiling lava flowed over the cool, wet surfaces about 2,300 years ago.

There are marked walking paths through the area, including a shorter circular route on the western end that takes 20 – 30 minutes to complete
