了解 Eldgjá

 

Eldgja is the largest volcanic canyon in the world, 270m deep, 600m at its widest and around 40 km long. 

The canyon lies paralel with the Lakagigar craters. The first documented eruption of Eldgja, in 934, was the largest flood basalt in historic time.

A beautiful watefall, Ofaerufoss in the river Ofaerua falls into in the Eldgja canyon. This is a two-spilt waterfall and the lower part used to have a natural bridge, but the bridge collapsed in the early nineties.
