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!
