  • The canyon doesn't look like much from the beginning, but it gets more and more beautiful with each viewpoint culminating with a wonderful waterfall having shades of blue i have never seen. It is a 30 minutes walk/hike up until the end of the canyon and 10 minutes back.

  • Was beautiful. Lots of the area was roped off in beginning of November to protect foliage and the spawning Trout. Still a good spot to stop.

  • One of my favourite places in Iceland. The view is just, well you have to see it to understand the feeling. The word breathtaking would be close to the feeling.

  • It’s pretty awesome. Try and go there early so you can catch sunrise

  • Breathtaking view! Gets better when getting to higher viewpoints.
