Gjáin in Thjorsardalur area is a lovely lush little valley, full of twisting lava, otherworldy caves and spectacular waterfalls. Gjáin simply means rift, and it was a filming location in Game of Thrones. Lush greenery, waterfalls all around you and beautiful rock formations. Here we are located right by the central highlands of Iceland and one does not expect the landscape to be so breathtaking here.
