There you will see the 44 meters tall waterfall Gluggafoss which forms part of the bigger Merkjárfoss falls.
From December 15th to June 1st there is also the possibility of going on top of the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that erupted in 2010. In good weather the scenery from the top is spectacular with a view over the inland of Iceland, the surrounding glaciers, the black beaches and the Vestmannaeyjar islands. In addition you will get to look into the vast crater from which over 500 tonnes of ash per second were at one time being ejected!
