This is a magnificent place to visit when you are in Iceland. It's about 5 hours away from Reykjavik, but definitely worth the drive. Just read the reviews and come. Don't forget to visit the beach side across from the bridge. Was able to see...More

The place is great I don't know another place to get this close to icebergs heading out to sea (or ocean) without a boat. Natural beauty at its best. Wrap up warm in winter months.

We stopped here around sunset for amazing pictures, then returned the next morning when it was a little less crowded. Seals in the bay, icebergs all over. WOW. This place was other-worldly. Don't forget to go across Ring Road to the beach along the ocean....More
