Worth the detour off the main road. These columns are impressive. Parking area in a pull-off. Standing at the base gives a great perspective of how tall these columns are.

The view of the cliffs from the bottom is unique and interesting. The scramble to the top is somewhat precarious, but rewarding if the weather is clear. After you visit the cliffs, continue down the road to visit Raudamelsokelda, a bubbling mineral spring, waterfall, and...More

Just drive up the road and park off the side of the road in front of the columns. We found a trail that went up to the top and walked around up there for a while and around the area. It was a pretty stop....More

We somehow expected more but I guess since it was still snowy you couldnt see the salt columns all the way from the buttom. I think the view is better when you are further away than when driving right in front of them.

beautiful, on a gravel dirt road off the main. Hiked up and slid down. Great place to take pics. If you have a small car, avoid driving too far in because the road becomes icy

It's an attraction just next to the main road but can be easily missed but definitely worth a short visit.

Cool basalt formation, requires a little offroading. Worth a visit if you're in the Snaefellness peninsula.

A long line of basalt columns that almost looks like a fortress wall. Requires a little bit of offroading. Worth a stop.
