Strangakvísl - Eldgjá
To avoid driving over Ströngukvísl river it is possible to park the car south of the river and start hiking from there and go over a hiking bridge. The trail follows the river Nyðri Ófæra and into Eldgjá and is quite scenic.
This route lies from the car park at Eldgjá, to the Ófærufoss waterfall, and then upp on the eastern edge of the gorge and onto the Gjátindur mountain (943 m a.s.l.). From there on a good day, there is a wonderful view of the gorge and Skaftá area. The return may be the same way or via the gorge bottom, notice path to the bottom is steep and difficult.
