  • Spectacular views of the canyon. Another incredible landscape in Iceland. If you have limited time, this is a great place for a quick stop as it does not take long to walk to the best vistas.  more »
  • Spectacular! Wonderful views from the top of the canyon down to the water running through. Great photo opportunities. There is a simple 2km path that runs along the edge of the canyon. Must visit!  more »
