    A pleasant walk and you come to a river where there are these lava rocks. A spectacle of nature. Look like modern art. All in total silence.

    We did the trail leading to the Raudholar, Red Mountain, advised by the Rother walking guide (I urge you also, for the modest sum € 10) it allows to admire the formations of basalt with an appearance in "honeycomb", a stream, a small cave, to then climb the great mountain to the colors red and black. Not a big problem if you have walking shoes. However access to a track of Earth and stones during 1 h, but in 4 x 4's with no problems. I recommend it to all who want a nice setting without a troop of tourists.

    Where the river meets the sea the icebergs float past and beach themselves at high tide allowing you to get up close and personal with the ice!  more »
