  • Who can, who can see here to discover fairies behind bushes, dancing Elves on the waters and the one or other troll sullen as he spot Lugt out from his cave. Who can't do that in this place, which should rather spend his holiday in Mallorca. I hope the mass tourism does not destroy such places, but the worst, I'm afraid!

  • This is a fantastic spot to get away from the tour buses. Gorgeous views 360. It's worth braving the rocky/gravel road in. 
  • From the farm of Stong easy hike. Suddenly, in front of opens the canyon Gjain: a beautiful scenery with waterfalls, basalt columns, lush vegetation, various lava caves: a truly lovely place from which you would not want more come out. ... ...

  • The waterfalls are simply amazing. I would highly rate this as one of the most beautiful falls I've ever seen, a true paradise that is well worth the drive & hike!
  • A very very hidden but beautiful place mainly in the nowhere. It is difficult to reach this area, only via 4x4 car or with a 7km walk. But it's absolutely worth!
  • Could not get there with a 2wd rental car, both ways in are F-roads. Pictures look awesome, Maybe next time.
  • Hidden gem in Iceland, even some part of Game of Thrones were filmed in this place. Bumpy unpaved road to reach it.
  • Hidden treasure
