Highlights from the Place

Dverghamrar, or Dwarf Cliffs, are located in South East Iceland about 10 km east of the village Kirkjubæjarklaustur. Hexagonal basalt columns form a small horseshoe-shaped canyon believed to have formed during the Ice age when sea levels were much higher. They formed this shape as strong waves hit the cliffs. According to local folklore, dwarves lived in the cliffs of this natural monument. The cliffs are close to the waterfall Foss á Síðu and can be seen from there. Dverghamrar are just few minutes walk from the parking area on Road 1.
