After leaving Kirkjubæjarklaustur to the east you’ll see a magic scenery: a small settlement underneath high rocks and a slim waterfall (the Foss á Síðu) dropping down to the houses. On the other side of the road you’ve got a good opportunity for a break: Dverghamrar offers a parking area and small round course to volcanic remains close to the road. Large basalt columns line up between green fields.

Dverghamrar means ‘dwarf rocks‘ and it also isn’t a big site but still worth a short stop. There is also a small picnic area for those in need. From there you’ll still need 45 minutes to the next interesting place, the Skaftafell oasis.
