Fjadrargljufur Canyon Reviews
Un peu caché des sentiers battus, à 10 minutes de la route principale, un magnifique canyon à visiter... Nous l'avons vu alors qu'il avait beaucoup neigé et les paysages étaient vraiment particuliers.... more »A little hidden from the beaten path, 10 minutes from the main road, a beautiful Canyon to visit... We saw it while it had snowed a lot and the landscapes were really peculiar... At the time of the visit, only the high road was available (site weakened by the tourist activity). Walking is easy.
Невероятно красивый каньон, по пути к нему очень много лавовых полей, виды просто завораживают!!! Были уже в сумерках, но все равно очень понравилось) more »Incredibly beautiful canyon, on the way to it a lot of lava fields, the views are simply fascinating!!! There were already at dusk, but still loved it)
