Hvannárgil (N65°16.868-W15°47.418) // 4 klst.

Hvannárgil is one of the 30 Pearls of Egilsstaðir region and refers to some of the most stunning hikes of the area. 

This spectacular canyon almost cuts the mountain range of Möðrudalur in two. It is divided into three parts and it takes approx. two hours to walk into the innermost part of it, which is the most magnifent and beautiful part. The hiking trail is circular and leads you through the canyon (N65°17.525 – W15°50.881) starting at the highest creek and through the lower ones on the way back to the starting point. It has beautiful rock formations and in the middle one is a gorge which is absolutely worth the effort. The highest creek is very impressive with a waterfall at its end. The cylinder with the visitors’ log and stamp is at the highest creek.
