"Hljodaklettar (Whispering Cliffs)" Iceland Things to Do Tip by Skibbe

Iceland Things to Do: 998 reviews and 2,342 photos

Odd looking crater plugs depicting basaltic columns in different positions creating lots of patterns. The loose material of those craters was washed away by catastrophic flood waves originating from the big icecap Vatnajokull in the south.

I had a good hike of an hour or so here and was really taken with it.

Directions: Jokulsargljufur Park.
