Lake Mývatn: North Iceland’s Geothermal Wonderland – Camerons Travels

Our Rick Steves Iceland guidebook co-author, Ian Watson, told me I’d love the Lake Mývatn area. It feels like someone gathered up a half-dozen great American national parks and tucked them into one little corner of North Iceland. And, sure enough, I’m minutes away from one of the region’s most appealing eateries: Cowshed Café. After just 15 minutes, I turn off to see one last spectacular sight in North Iceland: the epic waterfall called Dettifoss. The epic Dettifoss is a fitting grand finale for my visit to the Mývatn area.
