Ńsbyrgi Canyon is a fabulous monument to the unforgiving power of nature. The canyon is horseshoe shaped and legend has it that the canyon was created by the footprint of Odin's eight-legged horse, Sleipnir. Today, science has revealed that the canyon came to existence during a catastrophic flood eight to ten thousand years ago. The canyon is about one kilometre across and 3.5 kilometres in length with walls that are up to 100 meters high. The canyon is an absolute paradise offering serenity and magnificent scenery. The visitors centre offers further information about the Ńsbyrgi area.
