Mývatn winter festival

March 4 - 13

The Mývatn Winter Festival is a one-of-a-kind event in Iceland. People compete in multiple non-traditional winter sports, mostly on frozen Lake Mývatn. Those competitions include Mývatn Open - Horses on Ice, the national competition of Dog Sledding and the "Sled of Mývatn" - where teams bring a homemade sledge to the track. Snocross is also a popular winter sport in Iceland. Still, it hasn't been very visible for the past years, that is about to be changed! The weekend of March 4th-13th, 2022, will be full of events and activities for the whole family. Learn how to fish through the ice, go cross-country skiing, try out one of the tracks yourself, visit the snow dogs and enjoy good food and good music.


See you at Mývatn Winter Festival in 2022.
