Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon is a beautiful canyon in the south of Iceland which is near the ring road and became famous because of a music video of Justin Bieber.
Parking is limited and fills early. Get there very early in the morning or very late in the afternoon to get a parking spot. The canyon was relatively unknown to tourists until Justin Bieber shot a music video there in 2015. Since then visitation has increased dramatically, resulting in restrictions on where you can go along the canyon rim. Tourists were destroying the grassy rim and putting themselves in peril walking onto the narrow “peninsulas”. Fortunately, viewing platforms have been built at strategic locations that allow for good photo compositions.
From Ring Road (1), turn west on Holtsvegur (206) and drive 3.2 km to the parking area. There are vault toilets in the parking area.
Crowd Factor A decent amount of people
