    The way to Askja is very beautifull. In august '21 still snow on the last part to go on foot.
    It feels like you are in another world.

    Right next to the car park, its a 15 min stop if you want to wander into the cave take a few photos, clamber along to the other end and then snap a couple more shots and emerge into the sunlight. Torch not needed but can help as your eyes adjust to the darkness.

    You can dip your hands (but certainly not swim) in the clear water as the steam rises around you.

    Just a handful of other souls there in early April, but I wouldn't want to have to que or visit in high season, try again when there are less people around.

    This small museum has carefully mounted birds from all over Iceland. A great spot to see how many you've already identified as well as to figure out what those little birds in the lake as you entered the museum were (phalaropes).

    The visitor center had interesting exhibits and helpful staff. It's right next to where the Ring Road tees. Left is the lake, right is the village and visitor center. A cooperative handcraft shop is next door with a great selection of lopapeysas.

    Like nothing else we've seen before. The bus was very comfortable on the rough tracks, the driver drove safely, and the lady in charge of the tour (difficult name, but she had lived in Italy for a few years) was amazing- she had extensive knowledge of history and geography of the place, and made the journey very interesting.

    A stop for a few minutes before fuelling up in the village and/or a coffee at the Icelandair Hotel will take in the history of the church and how it missed the lava flows in 1729 as streams of lava flowed through the village.
