How to find Hafrahvammagljúfur:
The Hafrahvammagljúfur canyon originates just down bellow the Kárahnjúkavirkjun dam. But to have the best views and impressions, I´d advice you to go bit deeper into the nature via road F910 where then you can park here (GPS: 64.979526, -15.756883). Frome there on it is just few hundred meters/yd to the canyon. If you travel by car not suited well for F-roads or you are here sooner then the F910 is even opened, then you can park where the foad 910 turns into F910 and go further on foot. It takes about 2 hours to come here. You will be rewarded by amazing views just for yourself.
