Included as part of a tour, very interesting due to the geology of the area, the meeting/separation of 2 tectonic plates. Good photo opportunity and you are able to take a good walk between the rock formations. Slippy when snowing.

We reported the incident to a warden in the reception at Hakid. All we got was that the track had... More

Breath-taking and awe inspiring. Words cannot do justice. We came in the winter and are even more excited to return to see in the summer season too.

We visited this last out of the big 3 attractions on the Golden Circle, but this was by far the most impressive! Driving down through the park, the colours were just stunning and it felt unspoilt and remote, despite well maintained roads.

Some amazing geology in this park and a nice waterfall, worth a visit and easily doable in 2 hours. Frustrating that you have to pay for parking and use of the WC otherwise this would have got a 5 star.
