Námafjall is a volcanic mountain that offers stunning views of the Mývatn lake area on one side and the Hverir geothermal field and further into the interior on the other.

You can find Námafjall in northern Iceland, in the eastern part of the Mývatn lake area above the Hverir geothermal fields. From the parking lot at the Hverir geothermal fields, you can hike up to Námafjall either to the left, where the path is quite steep, or to the right, partially along the road, where the path is easier. You can combine both options and make about a one-hour loop.

At the top of Námafjall, you can easily feel like you’re on a completely different planet.
