Höfði is a beautiful peninsula in the Mývatn area. You can enter a gate at the parking lot and walk to the top of Höfði and have a breathtaking panoramic view of Lake Mývatn and the surrounding areas. It is so beautiful up there, we really do recommend stopping there.
The Höfði peninsula used to be barren until the proprietor of the peninsula and his wife started planting thousands of trees and plants during their summer holidays. They carried out this work for decades. After the husband died the wife donated Höfði to the county. Thanks to these hard working people Höfði is now open to public and we get to visit this beautiful green peninsula with a lot of vegetation, flowers, and extraordinary views. There are paths around the peninsula and from the furthest point of Höfði, you will see the most beautiful lava pillars in Mývatn – the lava pillars of Kálfastrandavogar.
