As with many places not on the ring road, Asbyrgi is much quieter and less visited, but it is well worth the drive. You can go walking on various paths which are generally easy (one person in front of us was walking with a cane...More
It was much less busy here than many places in Iceland. The visitor center was very educational, nicely kept, and quiet. The quiet continued even when driving to the end and hiking some trails. There were some people, but definitely not many at all. The...More
since tour so that short time visit, actually that is great place for hiking but we just reach base side for viewing the small lake & part of cliffs. although that is beautiful but cant have the view of Ásbyrgi Canyon. sad.
Asbyrgi is a quiet and secluded horse shoe shaped lake off the beaten track.
From the car park it is a good 10 -15 minute pleasant walk to the lake - calming - with plenty of wild life and birds to be seen - have...More
After the deafening roar of Dettifoss it was lovely to walk into Asbyrgi canyon where it was very peaceful and quiet. It is an amazing horseshoe shaped canyon with 90m cliffs and a pool at the bottom. The pool is very still and with the...More
We spent the day driving north of Husavik and decided to check out Asbyrgi Cliffs. It was a pleasant surprise. The park is free with a WC. At the end of the drive is a small lake surrounded by lava cliffs. The lake is fed...More
Free parking at the end of the road with toilets is an advantage. There are many path routes and the whole area with the lake, trees and amazing canyon walls is quiet amazing. Still not crowded. I have enjoyed my time there. I would like...More
This is an extraordinary place. There is a car park and path, but wear boots. The path Leeds to a delightful pond with towering 90 m high cliffs above. If geology interests you, this is for you. In any event, this is a lovely place...More
After spending some time at the Visitor's Centre, which is very informative, drove further down the road to a parking area of trails. The road has the canyon on either side. The trails travelled through a nice wooded area before opening out to a pond...More

Not sure which of the points you mean, but all the trails to the view points start right at the entrance to the canyon, around the parking lot. The one to the top of the inner cliff would about 40 min hike one way and the hike is relatively easy.
the hike on the outer rocks (surrouning canyon) would take much more time - reserve at least 3 hours to enjoy the nature and views. though cannot tell about the difficulty as we did not take it.
If I remeber correctly, there is a trials map at the parking lot with all info (time, difficulty etc), so it would be easy to decide on the spot.
