... sights. We loved it. A bit further down the road, we arrived at Reynisfjara. Again, much like Dyrhólaey, this beautiful area combines cliffs, black beaches and beautiful rock formations to dazzle onlookers. The bonus? We saw lots of puffins!

In addition there we saw Halsanefshellir, the basalt sea cave. This large mountain faces the ocean covered by basalt columns in different directions with a gigantic cave in the middle. The mountain must be 100 metres high and the cave is about ...
