This is marked on the highway but not visible directly from the road so look for the sign. The basalt columns are impressive and it is an easy walk. There is a very nice waterfall close by as well.

Dverghamrar is east of Kirkjubaejarklaustur right along the Ring Road. There is a very short loop trail that leads to the Dwarf Cliffs which are formed from basalt columns, a common theme repeated at Kirkjugolf and on Reynisfjall mountain at Reynisfjara. Informative signs are in...More

A quick stop on the ring road to stretch and walk down to a belt of basalt columns a few km from Kirkjubaejarklaustur. A tall waterfall is across the road. Great photo opportunities.

Directly at ring road, easy to miss. Parking lot available and easy to access. Takes about 10-15 minutes to enjoy and then cruise on.

Extremely good stop if you're anything nearby or just driving along the road. Simple trail and very interesting information on how the rocks were actually formed. We actually stopped and had our lunch there since we packed them ourselves.

This marked the furthest east of our Iceland Adventure, exploring this amazing country, on Day Four. We stopped here in beautiful and brilliant sunshine, having enjoyed the sight of the waterfall nearby just a short time before. We explored the basalt column geology and marvelled...More

I don't think this attraction is worth a special trip, but stop if you are passing by. Cute rocks formation with a legend attached.

15 or 20 minutes should be enough. It is very close to the Ring Road.
