Description

One of East Iceland's most illustrious spots is the Stórurð ("The Giant Boulders"), located to the east of the road leading to Borgarfjörður Eystri.

Stórurð lies below the small glacier west of Dyrfjöll mountains.

It consists of gigantic tuff boulders, charming meadows, and attractive ponds.

This wonderful scene can be reached in 2.5 hours on foot from Vatnsskarð pass.

To enjoy Dyrfjöll and Stórurð a whole day plan is highly recommended.
