Stóra Dímon

Stóra Dímon

Groups who have climbed the 178m to the top of Stóra Dímon often refuse to come back down, not because they’re too exhausted, but because the views out are so stunning. From the summit, you can admire a wonderful 360° panorama.

On the eastern horizon the three ice caps of Tindfjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull are seen, while to the south lies the Westmann Islands. However, perhaps most impressively of all is the aerial view gained over the lower course of the Markarfljót River, sediment choked, with complex braided channels and eyots galore.

What a place to talk about Iceland’s geography, from river processes, forms and management to the causes and effects of the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption on this area; a most magnificent location.
