Beautiful place. Would love to go there in summer, as we were there in winter. The road was quite scary, though, but we had a good car: 4x4 Mitsubishi. highly recommend.

My hostess at my guesthouse near Vik recommended this canyon to me, and I am so glad she did. It was not on my radar until then. Once I parked the car, I hiked up the marked walkway, a good, but reasonable hike. There are a couple of side points to go to where you can view the canyon from... More

The place is amazing, lovely also when dressed in white. The paths were slippery since not everyone comes here, you will not see masses as in other places but it's not a hidden gem since it's in every book and guide.

It had snowed overnight and we were visiting here first thing in the morning, and also the first ones at the site. Thus, you had to drive a bit over carefully since the road was not properly visible at places, but the drive back was normal, so I'd say this is well reachable. It took about 30 mins to hike...

This beautiful canyon is not really marked on the road so you need to know exactly how to find it! The road leading up to the canyon is unpaved so a 4x4 is advised. It's a nice hike up to the end of the canyon. You can hike on top, or at the bottom of the canyon. The view is... More

Don't miss stopping here. The views were absolutely a highlight for us. We really enjoyed the walk,with just moderate inclines after the initial ascent (which was somewhat steep). We went in summer and the green moss with the blue water and canyon walls made for some wonderful photos!

The road to this place is not as good as the ring road, we had a 4x4 so that was really helpful. Not many tourists at this place when we visited, but it was rather dark and windy when we got there. The view was stunning nevertheless, totally worth the effort to stop by.

This scenic spot is a great stop that was relatively uncrowded and on a sunny day, the view is great! You can hike the bottom too (granted the water levels are low enough).

We stopped off here on our journey between Vik and Jokulsarlon. It was absolutely worth it - a really beautiful canyon which you can walk both along the top off and (with the right shoes and depending on the water level) along the bottom off as well! The colours looked gorgeous in the sunshine and the rocks form all sorts... More
