Criminally overlooked! This is an easy hike on a quiet stretch - perfect for getting away from the crowds. It takes in great views of the lava rock formations and allows you to get right up close to them all the while taking in views of the lake

a lovely walk through very interesting lava/rock formations. you can make our troll faces so maybe a fun one for children.

lovely easy hike with beautiful views. definitely recommend this one.

A pleasant walk rather than a hike. Be sure to do the church loop as it takes in the most impressive lava arch

Interesting neat natural formations; recommend this trail because it was sparsely used.

Pleasant place to walk, lots of interesting formations, as well as little nooks and crannies and fun surprises. Easy stroll on mostly narrow, paved lanes, with a few well-marked trail options of varying lengths. Some opportunities for a bit of easy optional climbing for some great views, especially of Hverfjall. Connects to other, much longer trail networks. Was there in May, saw several other folks, but the layout helps you feel more solitary. Quiet. Staying on trail (in-between ropes) is suggested to preserve the area, and promote safety. Possible to get lost otherwise, as there's lots of wilderness surrounding. Several parking spaces, with room for larger vehicles. Visitor center with food and facilities on-site (but not always open). Would return.

Á-2 Eyjan hill in Ásbyrgi
Distance: 4,5 km (back and forth)
Walking time: 1,5-2 hrs
Starting point: Car park in front of the service house at the campsite
Path difficulty: Easy route (blue)

The trail upon Eyjan (“the island”) in Ásbyrgi starts at the parking lot at the campsite. The trail heads first north and then it goes up the cliff where it is suitable for ascent. Wood steps have been put up for easier access. When up at the Eyjan the path goes soon past an old pile of stone. If you turn around there, the route is 2 km long, but if the path is followed further south, it goes all the way to the edge of the cliff. From there is a beautiful view over Ásbyrgi. This route is an enjoyable evening stroll.
