Text on back of card: The pseudo-craters (Skútustaðagígar) and hamlet at Skútustaðir along the southern shore of Mývatn. The craters were formed about 2000 years ago when lava poured over marshland, super-heating the water beneath. Lava burst through the solidifying crust to form cones. The lake is one of the largest in Iceland and is the seasonal home to a variety of birds.
