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!

This reference is focussed on Hljodaklettar which is a real geological highlight The rare formations speak of the massive power of nature. The strange river noise acoustics were curious too.
