Kjölur

Description

Kjölur

Kjölur is a highland plateau in central Iceland. This is the scenery of the popular Kjalvegur, an easy trail. On higher points, one will have impressive view on the two on both sides of the plateau, the Langjökull and Hofsjökull. Glistening rivers depart from the ice and cut ravines out of the colourful plains. There are hot springs as well. And you will probably meet large hoards of the proud Iceland horse, because once this was a traditional corridor across the island.
