Klifbrekkufossar is the leading actor on a natural stage setting which includes multiple waterfalls and rivulets, verdant mountains and valleys, a flord and a few sheep. Klifbrekkufossar, itself, is a series of seven tiered waterfalls set between huge cliffs at the bottom of the fjord Mjóifjörður. Around 90 meters high, they can best be viewed from the roadside at the base of the falls.

The scenic 17 km gravel Rt. 953 drive to the bottom of the fjord is an adventure only accessible from June until September as the mountain pass leading to the narrow fjord is closed in winter. I describe this road as Hell (narrow, winding, steep, and with switchbacks) before reaching Heaven (Klifbrekkufossar). While 4wd isn't require, it would certainly be advantageous.
