I loved this gorge hike, not difficult but really fun and wet climbing. Ends with a green rope which is fun to climb but you will get soaked. It is worth it. Take some wet gear.

Great walk up to a small waterfall. You can walk back into the cave a little bit for some great pictures

Really fun hike into a cave which can be climbed around for a bit. Super fun in the winter and I can't wait to go again a bit deeper in the summer.

Snow and icy rocks were slippery and prevented us from going too far in but the gorge was awesome and definitely worth the quick hike!

Eyrún and I hiked over a stream down the narrow ravine until a green rope stopped us. Otherworldly views!!

Lovely short hike and really cool to clamber along the canyon (I suggest you wear waterproofs). I did not attempt the green rope climb though!

A rewarding and short hike through the canyon. After a short while you'll face some large stones to clamber over. Keep going. It's worth getting wet for and the canyon is narrow so it's fairly easy to stabilise yourself as you move forward. Didn't climb the green rope but the views up to that point didn't disappoint.

This was probably the best short hike I did on Iceland. The gorge was absolutely beautiful. You'll have to make a short climb but he rock is not slippery. Keep going deeper in the gorge and you'll come to a green rope where you climb higher in the canyon. You'll get a little wet for sure. Unfortunately, we didn't have proper clothing or adequate time to make this climb.
