historic site

The basalt columns of Kirkjugólf, got their name because they were once believed to be a church floor. We now know that this beautiful place is a work of nature rather than humans. The site lies in a meadow a little northwest of the N1 petrol station. To get there, take Rte 203 until you see a small parking area, access gate and sign.
