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

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

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.
