This stunning lake located in the northern part of Iceland is called Mývatn. It is a eutrophic lake with shallow depth that can be found in the part of Iceland where there’s active volcanism. It’s not too far from the Krafla volcano. The lake and the surrounding areas are abundant with animal species, particularly waterbirds and ducks.
According to historians, the lake was created as a result of a basaltic lava eruption that happened over 2,000 years ago. This is why, most of the landscape nearby are of pseudocraters and lava pillars. Today, this lake along with the nearby river Laxa has been declared as protected nature reserve.
