“Great to finally see some trees!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

This place is gorgeous in Autumn! Worth the drive from Egilsstadir and on the way to Hengifoss. Coming from a part of the world with lots of densely packed tall trees, after a few days in Iceland it was really nice to take a walk in the woods. Would recommend for anyone who is a fan of trees. The drive to the forest is lovely and along the Lagarfljót river, there's even a belief that there's a Loch-Ness style river monster in there. Look out!

“Beautiful forest”

Lots of nice walks and you might see the Lagarfjlótsormur in Lagarfljót at least look out for the sign.
