瓦特纳冰川国家公园（Vatnajökull National Park）建立于2008年，斯卡夫塔山自然保护区（Skaftafell Nature Reserve）等著名景点就坐落其中。斯卡夫塔山冰川（Skaftafellsjökull glacier）位于斯卡夫塔山旁，从空中望去，好似一条在群山间铺展开来的冰毯。
Langisjor is among the clearest highland lakes in the country. Its altitude is 670 meters and at its deepest it’s 75 meters.
The lake lies southwest of Vatnajokull, between the mountains Tungnarfjoll and Fogrufjoll. The beautiful Fogrufjoll mountains (literally 'The Beautiful Mountains'), to the east of the lake, are a popular hiking place and the waters allow for trout fishing.
Lakagigar, in the south of the Icelandic highlands, is a row of craters, formed during one of the largest eruptions in recorded history, known as the fires of the River Skafta, or ‘Skaftareldar’ in Icelandic. The area has some of the most stunningly attractive landscapes in Iceland.
The majority of the craters are today covered in racomitrium moss.The total area of the lava field is 565 km² and the estimated volume of volcanic material is over 12 km². The Skaftareldar eruption that formed the craters in the 18th century led to crop failure, disease and disasters in Iceland. Some believe that the arirbourne haze from the eruption, blocking the sunlight in the northern hemisphere, may have contributed to the French revolution in 1789.
Skaftafell is a nature preserve in Oraefasveit. It used to be a national park of its own but joined the larger Vatnajokull National Park in 2008.
Skaftafell is notable for its rich flora, growing between sands and glaciers, and overall for its amazing and contrasting scenery. You can take short and easy trails to the waterfalls Svartifoss and Hundafoss, as well as Skaftafell glacier, with the mountain Kristinartindar and Morsardalur valley further off.
Skaftafell is also the perfect base camp for those seeking to climb Iceland’s highest peak, Hvannadalshnukur.
