West of Svartifoss, a hiking trail climbs uphill to the lookout point Sjónarnípa. Behind the viewpoint are sweeping mountains and glaciers. In front of it is the stark, stunning intersection of mountains with the black plains of Skeiđarársandur. The river Morsá retreats into the background, on its way to the ocean.
