From Arnarstapi Toward the Glacier

If you drive up the F570 from Arnarstapi, you’ll pass Stapafell (526m), home to the local little people, and you’ll see miniature house gables painted onto rocks in their honour. Further along you’ll pass a collapsed crater, which created a series of lava caves about 1.5km from the main road. The largest cave is Sönghellir (Song Cave), which is full of 18th-century graffiti and is rumoured to resound with the songs of dwarfs. Bring a torch to read the various markings and don’t be shy about belting out your favourite melody.
