    Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon

    February 15 in Iceland

    This was certainly an interesting place and the weather really made it, not to mention the quantity of snow in and around it. We are sure it's a great place to visit in the summer but we don't think you can walk up it because the river snakes through from side to side. To view it, then, there is a path running along the right-hand side with viewpoints in several places where we stopped to take our photographs. You can see Tony in one of them and if you look into the distance you can see part of the Katla lava field.

    The path is around 1.8km and we walked to the end where it terminates with a viewing platform for the canyon and also fine views across the snowfields to the mountains beyond. We really enjoyed our time there which must have been around 3 hours. It seems a long time to take a few snaps doesn't it, but that's not all it was about. The views, the warm sunshine and the quiet and relaxing time spent there. That's what made it for us.

    Fjaðrárgljúfur

    October 3, 2017 in Iceland

    Eine Sprachübung für alle Leser!😂

    Da wir den Namen auch nicht aussprechen können, haben wir uns gedacht, wir schauen es uns an. Über eine holprige Schotterpiste gelangen wir zu einem Parkplatz, von dem aus wir entlang einer grünen Schlucht bei schönstem Sonnenschein spazieren. Am Ende der Schlucht oder auch am Anfang, je nachdem wie man es sieht, laufen drei (unterschiedlich starke) Wasserfälle zusammen, ein schönes Naturschauspiel, dass sich leider bildlich gar nicht so festhalten lässt.Read more

    Fjadrárgljúfur canyon

    August 14, 2017 in Iceland

    Mooie kloof tot 100 meter diep.
    Bij laag water kun je ook langs het riviertje lopen al hou je dan geen droge voeten.

    Dit paste gisteren niet meer in het programma dus voorbij gereden. De exacte route en stopplaatsen van de bus wisten we van te voren niet (behalve Laki). Dit was daarom een aangename verrassing dat dit onze eerste stop zou zijn.

    Het valt me op hoeveel Chinezen hier ook rondrijden in huur jeeps tot een dikke Mercedes ML aan toe

    Fjadrárgljúfur canyon

    August 3 in Iceland

    Als je de weg 206 in rijdt kom je bij deze canyon (vraag me niet het uit te spreken, zelfs de IJslanders hebben er moeite mee).
    Het is 9000 jaar geleden ontstaan door een meanderend riviertje wat langzaam deze canyon gesleten heeft
    Hier gaat ook het lavaveld van Kaki verder naar de kust terwijl Laki nog 45 kilometer verder ligt.Read more

    Day 4 - Fjaðrárgljúfur

    March 12, 2017 in Iceland

    We were a little undecided about whether to visit Fjaðrárgljúfur, but we decided to take the short detour and head there anyway. A little off the beaten track, there was barely anyone else there visiting the 100m deep and 2km long, winding cavern created by a glacier during the ice age.
    The photos don't quite do it justice. We had lots of chances to test our nerve tiptoeing along the narrow fingers that stick out into the cavern. Sitting on the edges of the cliff, feet dangling above the Fjaðrá river hundreds of metres below was a little surreal.Read more
