Didn't have a plan when me and my traveling companion dropped our friends off at the Blue Lagoon for a spa day. We saw Selatangar in the ICELAND guidebook and thought, "why not? could be cool". It was the highlight of our 4 day trip...More
West of Grindavik, along the ring road about ten miles, hard to find- a rough rocky narrow (take it easy) dead end road that leads directly to a canyon area justt east of the parking area, and a amazing raw polished black lava stone beach...More
You need an SUV to get out there, but don't waste your time, the sign at the site doesn't even tell you what you're looking for, because the image they show is totally not what is there. We walked around there for awhile and saw...More
Make sure that you have a car capable of getting there. You are able to get close with a regular small car but do not attempt to drive in the loose sand on a small car without 4x4. Everyone gets stuck who does not have...More
The information sounded great; a ruined fishing village. The reality, on a cold, blowy afternoon, was a drive of over a kilometre along a track which only a 4x4 is capable of doing - the protruding rocks will take the exhaust or track rod ends...More

Yes, a 2WD car will make it, but slow going. There is a small parking area about 1200 meters (3/4 mile) off the paved road, and you can walk around from that point. Along this access road there are few "pulloffs" so if you... More
Yes, a 2WD car will make it, but slow going. There is a small parking area about 1200 meters (3/4 mile) off the paved road, and you can walk around from that point. Along this access road there are few "pulloffs" so if you meet another vehicle, it is a tight squeeze. It is a surreal environment.
