Interesting places and scenery near Fosshotel Núpar, South Iceland

The Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon

When the light hits the Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon just right, it lights up the verdant cliffs, deep valleys, and serpentine river Fjaðrá like a scene out of Middle Earth. Hikers can make their way down to the river – though be prepared for a little wading at times – or trek the walking path up on the canyon’s edge to soak up the panoramic (and very ‘Instagrammable’) views that spread out before them.

Dverghamrar - the Dwarf rocks

This peculiar yet beautiful rock formation lends itself well to Icelandic folklore, littered with tales of trolls, giants, elves, and dwarfs. The stories say these immense, hexagonal basalt columns were built by dwarves to use as their homes. However, geologists offer a different explanation, suggesting the famous cliffs were moulded at the end of the Ice Age through the cooling of lava, the motion of the tides, and the build-up of contraction forces.

The Kirkjugólf in Kirkjubæjarklaustur

Kirkjubæjarklaustur may just win the prize for having the most tongue-twisting name of any in Iceland. While small in stature with only 150 inhabitants, this small village has become a popular destination for visitors due to its position as a major crossroads to several dramatic locations. Discover the charming double waterfall, Systrafoss, before dropping by Systravatn lake – once a bathing place for nuns. Next, find a local to tell you the macabre backstory linked to Systrastapi or ‘Sister’s Rock’ and visit Kirkjugólf, a curious field of basalt rock and moss.
