Námafjall (Mine Mountain) is a very interesting geothermal area a few minutes from Lake Mývatn and close to the Krafla geothermal powerplant.
The area smells of sulphur but it doesn't take long to get used to the smell. There are many different kinds of geothermal activity which one can witness including mudpots and steam vents. You really get the feeling that the earth is alive.
I recommend wearing shoe covers over your shoes because the mud WILL stick on your shoes, especially after it has rained or snowed. One way of protecting your shoes is to wear these covers.

Amazing place and to think the earth is boiling beneath your feet. The smell wasn't too strong, the sight is well worth a stop. We went as the sun was slowly rising and it was cold, yet the earth was literally boiling!

Namaskard is immediately beside the highway a couple of miles from Lake Myvatn. It is a must see. The area is fairly compact. You can walk around in just a few minutes, or spend a lot more time if you want to explore. The bubbling, churning, steaming earth will leave you wondering what is below us.

Very fragrant geothermal area with lots of mudpots, fissures, and steam vents. Follow the rules and don't step off the trail as you will get burned and damage the landscape.

Eerie, odd, beautifully desolate and other worldly strange. This is a great place for a short hike--it's pretty spectacular. And the sulfur smell is really not that bad at all.
