Myvatn has the lake, several interesting volcanoes and a decent selection of hotels, guesthouses and amenities. The 'recommended' stay in the area is 2-3 days, as part of the 10-14 day Route 1 tour, but 1 day will be enough, unless you plan to hike round the lake or volcano.

The area is worth driving through but no overnight stay. We were scheduled to stay 3 nights and we got out of there after 1. It is a depressing place. And although there is a like there it is nothing special and the flies are everywhere. The side trip yo the falls is worth it but this place is over rated. We preferred Husavik which is about 30 to 45 minutes away.

The Myvatn area is a must for anyone with enough time to go outside of the capital. The lake itself if beautiful, with many bird life and a newly opened visotrs center in the middle of the lake. But the best parts are found the immediate surroundings. First are the Mývatn Nature Baths, which offer a more peaceful alternative to the blue lagoon, water is warmer, and prices much less steep. Then just over the hill are the amazing Hverarond bubling mud pools and steaming vents. The Hverfell crater also provides a look at a crater formation. To all this places you do not need any special vehicle as all the roads are in good condition.
