Hljodaklettar (The Whispering Cliffs) are a bizarre looking group of crater plugs
depicting basaltic columns in different positions creating all kinds of patterns, such as
rosettes, a lions head and for that matter whatever peoples minds
loose material of those craters was washed away by catastrophic flood waves originating
from the big icecap Vatnajokull in the south.
This is one of the most beautiful and
interesting hiking areas of the country. The Whispering Cliffs are a part of the
National Park Jokulsargljufur and should not be passed by. The distance from the
capital is 558 km by the Whale Bay tunnel and 78 from Husavik.
National Park's Visitors Centre, called "Gljufrastofa", is situated in
Asbyrgi. It is open during summer Tel.: 470 7100
