Fjadrargljufur - Review
Fjadrargljufur is a picturesque and massive canyon at Grindavik, the South of Iceland. It is located at the main road so you can just park your car nearby and witness this magnificent marvel of nature. The canyon is 100m tall and 2 km long. You can even go downhill and hike the canyon floor’s glacier waters. Tread along the fresh mossy trails while taking in the breathtaking views of the landscape. The canyon is filled with solitude and there’s even a waterfall which makes you feel as though you are in a land of fairies in an imaginary place. Make sure to carry a camera or your phone so you can capture some timeless nature shots of the Fjadrargljufur Canyon.

Fjadrargljufur, Grindavik Reviews
This is a gorgeous waterfall. The location originally tagged on the map is actually the parking lot. There is a half hour uphill climb on a designated trail to get the actual waterfall lookout. The unique feature about this waterfall is that three smaller ones pour into one area and the main waterfall is at the foot of all three. The canyon underneath is gorgeous and if you are lucky enough to get there on a sunny day, you are in for an amazing scene. I would recommend min one hour time allocation to see this place
Beautiful place! Just amazing how the water builds such nice strictures over the years. Also in the summer month you can easily hike through the canyon as the water is not too deep. During the winter months there's a great walking pass, which leads you to the very top with an amazing view over the canyon. Definitely a great place to see
Breathtaking view. The walk to the waterfall is very short and a must do as the view only gets better. There is limited parking and is a popular tourist destination. The road signs were a little confusing but it is possible to find the place. Bathrooms are also available on site. The walk is a bit slippery especially on rainy days. For those who cannot walk to the viewing pad there is a bridge by the parking lot where you can see the canyon and the river. One hour is more than enough to see the beauty and take pictures.
Again like anything in Iceland, this is gorgeous. I say it is a must see. It's a short hike from the parking lot. When I went it was raining and the trail was very slippery. I help my partners hand and walked cry slowly enjoying the view weather and beautiful wind. Not very crowded when I went due to bad weather.. cannot hike inside the lower part of canyon. Looks like they closed it.. still a good view from the steel platform built.
Although is not one of the most spectacular places you can find in Iceland, this place is really nice to visit and to stop if you are driving to another point. It's good for your legs as there is a little bit hiking, very easy one. The views are very nice, a little canyon. Not to compare with Asbyrgi though
