On our morning arrival in Isafjordur we had temperatures of about 9°C or 48°F and a strong breeze and overcast skies. That did not preclude us from seeing the town and hiking and some of us even went horseback riding. The highlight of the hiking was the group of our kid passengers who literally ran up the steep slope from the highway to the edge of the Troll’s Throne. In Icelandic tradition the Troll’s Throne was formed when a large female troll sat and rested. From a geologic perspective the Trolls Throne was formed by a relatively small side or hanging glacier that flowed into the much larger glacier that once occupied the now large fjord valley where the town of Isafjordur is located.
