This marked the furthest east of our Iceland Adventure, exploring this amazing country, on Day Four. We stopped here in beautiful and brilliant sunshine, having enjoyed the sight of the waterfall nearby just a short time before. We explored the basalt column geology and marvelled at the power of nature. We also did the responsible thing and removed some litter... More

Nice place to stop and stretch your legs... and a fun story to try to convince the kids of. Trail is well marked, a little swampy when we stopped.

This was a beautiful place with a fun backstory. We were the only people there which made it very peaceful. Spent about 10-15 minutes wandering around. Also there's a waterfall across the street that you can see from this spot.

A bit off the main road but you will see the signage. Came here on a very windy day, and the wind almost blew me off. But interesting find!

I dont think this would be very easy to spot from the road unless you know about it! But it's worth the stop for a 10min walk.

Easy walking paths for all to enjoy the age old lava outcrops. Fantastic shapes and colours abound. Stand in awe of nature and look for elves.

Right along the highway. Very interesting rock formations and worth exploring if you have the time and if weather permits.
