How to get there


Ferries-Car rentals


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 lion’s head and for that matter whatever people’s minds decide. The 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.
