From Kirkjubaejarklaustur it is very easy to get to the vast, soul-destroying sandars and to Skftafell.
It used to be thought that this honeycomb of basal columns, so regimented, regular and precise, was an old church floor. However, there have occured here naturally. Literally in the middle of nowhere and seemingly with no rhyme or reason. Strange and nice.
There is a small space for parking and then it is a short walk.
Two nuns were executed and buried here because they slept with the devil!
Also, the church (Steingrímsson Memorial Church) commemorates a sermon in 1783 which saved the town from the lava that spewed from Laki... the lava stopped just before it could hit and destroy the town... lucky!
