  • It is one of the hundreds of landscapes that you will find in Iceland, this one in particular is about 565 km2 of basaltic lava that expelled the Laki volcano in 1783 and which is considered the largest area that has been recorded in history. But what's he going to find you? Well, over time the moss has been covering layer by layer all the remnants of the eruption and now it's like you're walking on a mattress. It's really fun to move around these mounds, lie down, wallow.... In addition, depending on the time of year you visit it you can see it in different colors, green in spring, grey in autumn or white in winter if covered by snow. It is essential to make a stop to enjoy it.

  • Really interesting. Looks like an entirely different planet or time. Not a lot to see, but a great stop and a great view.
  • A unique place in Iceland. Huge lány covered with moss. A Unesco monument.
