... mostly situated at the foot of these outrageous mountains, rock masses and hillsides. We are also taken with the huge rock boulders that poke up out of the ground and are scattered across the country. In the distance, we notice a string of huge rocky outcrops pointing up into the skyline and decide to see if we can get closer. As it turns out they are separate small islands well off the south east coast of Iceland. They are known ...
