Fjaðrárgljúfur is one of the most spectacular natural wonders of Iceland. The canyon is about 328 feet (100 meters) deep and 1.24 miles (2 km) long and was formed over 9000 years ago by erosion from the Fjadra River which originates in the Vatnajokull glacier. Visitors can choose to view the canyon from the top via the hiking trail or they can hike down into the canyon (which includes wading the river). Trying to describe the deep canyon walls and twisting, fantasy-shaped structures amidst a snaking river is a real challenge. Just enjoy the dream-like view captured by my images!
