It used to be possible to walk up to these falls near Kirkjubærjarklaustur, but it has been closed off due to disrespect, especially illegal camping. You can still spot its trolls from a distance, though, if you have a good eye. Do pay your respects with a nod, at least, and for Troll’s sakes, respect those farms and their stock. The place should be a UNESCO site.
Imagine going up to this troll, through all these stone bones and heads, and collecting water for the farmhouse at its foot. It was here that I learned that trolls keep humans because humans keep sheep and trolls really like sheep. A humbling and always slightly uncertain relationship.
There must have been a LOT of water flowing here at one time, given how polished the rocks are. I really miss Iceland and its endless waterfalls.
You’re right! It’s a much-sculpted slope. Have you stopped at this one? It features in some old tourist books. None now. Which is just as well. I miss Iceland, too.
No, we did not get to this one but did a lot of exploring off the ring road.
The best places, for sure.
That is pretty spectacular!
Keep your eyes open! It’s marked on no map.
