Álftaver, a small district between Mýrdalssandur and Kúðafljót. Some hills and pseudo–craters on the north side have provided considerable protection from many of the floods from Katla. The craters are a protected natural feature. A view dial is located on Álftaver Road, near the crossroads at the Ring Road, a board with information about Þykkva­­bæjar­klaust­ur nearby.
