Create an itinerary including Mt. Namafjall (Namaskard)
Gigantic mud craters surrounded by sulfur crystals of many different colors, bubbling mud pots, and steam pots make up the landscape of Mt. Namafjall (Namaskard). Follow a small hiking trail, which goes up to the mountain and then returns to the highway and the parking lot. The soil in the area is almost barren due to erosion and the sulfur fumes. If you get cold and tired, soak in thermal baths on the other side of the mountain. To avoid injuries and burns, stay on the track. Bear in mind that the fumes can be harmful. Make your Reykjahlid itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Namafjall is within the Myvatn Geothermal Area...the drive up the range is beautiful. The white rock that you see as you reach the peak is dried lava! Learning the history of the area is nothing...

  • There is a circle hike around the whole area up to the hill and back ~2,5 km. Elevation to the top of the hill is just 140m from the parking lot. It's little bit windy up there, but the views from that place are incredible. Definitely worth climbing up.
