Stórurð Hiking

Stórurð Hiking

Hiking among Stórurð’s labyrinth of giant boulders surrounded by vividly colored aqua-blue ponds and charming mossy meadows is truly magical – even for Iceland. This secret valley lies just beneath a small glacier west of Dyrfjöll Mountains and was most likely created by a glacial landslide at the end of the last Ice Age.

From a distance, the rounded grey rocks resemble a giant’s pebbles scattered along the basin. The mystical scenery found at Stórurð is unlike anyplace else in Iceland.
