Sigöldugljúfur canyon (sometimes referred as Walley of Tears) is one of the hidden gems in Iceland and if you are travelling to Landmannalaugar, you definitely shouldn´t miss it. One side of the canyon is made by Lekafossar waterfalls and it is somehow ignored by the wast majority by passers-by. That´s a pity and if you are already here, have a quick stop and enjoy the pure nature. There is an interesting contrast between the sides of the canyon when one of it is grey and barren and the other is green and full of life. For photographers is Sigöldugljúfur one of the must-go places in iceland.
