Laufskalavartha Skaftafell Reviews
Laufskalavartha Jun 30, 2008
As you drive along the ring road between Vik and Skaftafell, you happen upon a strange lava field full of piles of stones, that stratch a good way back.
Was mentioned in the guide book we had so we stopped to have a look. The story was that the flow from a volcano erupting came down here destroying a house, can't remember if anyone was killed, but after that passing travellers would place a stone at the site for luck.
Just a field with a pile of cairns in it, but just another one of the many strange sights you come across in Iceland :)and you are going to be driving past it anyway ;)
