Another perfect pitstop when driving on ring-road 1 is Kolugljúfur. This powerful canyon is located deep in the valley Víðidalur in east Iceland. Falling down in to the beginning of the canyon is a wide waterfall called Kolufoss. From there on the water continues with a huge force down the canyon, creating muddy foam that adds to the scenery. Both the canyon and the waterfall are said to be named after the giant Kola. She lived close by and would choose this spot to hang out reaching all the way to the bottom of the canyon to catch a salmon for a snack.
