  • Well worth a trip of the main Route 1 to take in this wonderful gorge walk! Path leads up the hill alongside the gorge with walkways to viewpoints along the route.  more »
  • Canion Fyadrargljufur Iceland. Do I need to write about anything at all? This is another fairy tale and a dream that has become a reality. This is a place that well just has to visit. I was really impressed. And if you go around the Grand Circle, do not deny yourself the pleasure. And once again I understand how lucky we were with the weather.
