Excellent service, great staff. Best nights sleep so far! Paul, the waiter, makes the best cappuccino I've ever had!! The food is excellent (I had the fried Artic Char one night, the Lamb Shank the next) and everything is clean and tidy. It is conveniently located and the rooms have everything you would need. Hair dryer, soap, shampoo, shower caps. The kettle tray even has cocoa along with a variety of tea and regular and decaf coffee. Lake Myvatn is right across the road and on a really dark, clear night, you can see the Northern lights right out your window. (I could!) I am definitely adding this place on my "come back to" list!

Therefore, …
This is supposed to be one of the most beautiful areas of Iceland but we could hardly see anything due to the ****** weather., Am sure it would be stunning otherwise. Made it to the hot springs in the caves which are the most beautiful I have seen but you can not swim in them. the area has loads of hot thermal areas, volcanoes, mountains, walking trails etc. Pity!
Camped in the chill again tonight Brrrrrr
... for bird watching, with loads of ducks. Also a bird museum, which was our first stop. A kooky lady showed us the system, where you press the button next to the name of the bird, and the corresponding light next to the stuffed specimen lights up. On the way round the lake every time we stopped we were swarmed by black flies, for which the area is infamous. They are ...
... off to the side. There was more falling water during the drive, and we saw this cool scene of these mini waterfalls scattered about a mountainside.
The map showed Myvatn within our reach, but we decided on a 'quick', or so we thought, detour to Dettifoss, billed as the 'most powerful' waterfall in Europe...not sure how they measure power but no one seems to be disputing the claim. We dealt with gravel roads already during the trip, but the road to Dettifoss ...
... could leave at 16:15. Soon we stopped at a bird museum showing birds of Iceland with stuffed specimens. There were cases with their eggs also. It was well presented. The modern building housing the museum was turf covered. Outside there were some of the small flies for which the area is known flying around. By 17:00 we were on our way to tonight's accommodation at Lake Myvatn. This lake is the ?3rd largest in Iceland but only averages 2.5 m in depth. ...
