Visited as part of the Golden Circle Tour with Grayline. Was lots to see and do but didn't have much time to look around since the guide wanted us to follow her and were only left with about 10-15 minutes to ourselves. This time was taken up walking back to the coach so was disappointed. What we did see, however... More

very dramatic place, if you are geology enthusiast you will not want to leave! forces of nature at work in combination with good guides, good cafes (a must to warm up!) and natural beauty makes this the perfect day out

The story about the area is amazing. The tectonic plates below of USA and Europe shaping the landscape. And the history about the vikings and settlement of their first law is great.

Some beautiful scenery. We went in winter and the views were lovely. The cafe/shop was a little expensive, though Iceland is in general

Was really looking forward to visiting this UNESCO World Heritage Spot. During our brief stay we ended up here twice, one as part of Golden Circle Tour around noon and then as part of Northern Lights tour around midnight. Although we were dressed warm the biting wind did not make it easy to stay out for a long time. The... More

Visited as part of a Golden Circle trip with Reykjavik Excursions. Well worth the visit even though our visit was limited to a view over the National Park. Would have loved to have spent much more tie, on a much warmer day, walking through the trails and exporting the area more thoroughly. Another day - perhaps.

A common spot on the tourist route. Lots of great views and local history. The path was pretty slippery when we visited so be aware of your ability to walk and how quick you need to be to get back to the coach

An absolutely beautiful and amazing place. A must see when in Iceland! As a bit og a geology nerd I was thrilled at the rock formations, but dont take my word for it - go and see it for yourself!
