I have seen enough craters in Iceland to last me a lifetime. This one is easy to hike and the views are amazing once at the top. We had a pretty cloudy day but for a small while the sun came out and shone on the crater making it's colors to really pop. It was amazing to see.

Víti is a huge explosion crater, about 300 metres in diameter. The crater was formed during a massive volcanic eruption at the start of the famous Mývatn Fires in 1724. The eruption continued more or less non-stop for 5 years and Víti’s bubbling cauldron of mud boiled for more than a century after that. Víti is situated near Krafla and there is a tarmacked road leading up to it from Highway 1.
