    Lax�� river

    Laxà River is situate to the west of Myvatn. It mean River of Salmin, infact this is one of the best river where you can fish salmon. There is only a problem: the licence is very expensive and you can buy it to Veidiheimilid fam adn Ferdapjònustan Elda farm.

    The main factory in Myvatn is the geothermal factory to work of diatomite. Diatomite are small fossils (0.00005 % of the dimension of a grain of sand) and the depth of Myvath grow 1 mm every year. A ship take it from the depth and then it go to the factory when it is treatment with fire and smoke. Diatomite is use to male toothpaste, paints, plastic, fuel for airplane, oil....
    From Myvatn come every year 25 t of diatomite!!
