Subjects : The subject on which you visit this place is definitely the super-photogenic mountain range that rises on a lagoon (sometimes creating beautiful reflections) next to the sea; you can then play with the reflections that are created when the lagoon is calm, or use the black sand dunes with bushes of grass as close-ups! Alternatively there is also the sea, definitely not an option to discard would say.

Recommended equipment : I would say that I would just need to aim at a wide angle / Super Wide: the Nikon 14-24mm, the 14mm Samang, the Canon 16-35mm or 15-30mm Tamron are all more than good; if you possess an APS-C board a Tokina 11-16 or other objective of broad focal. It is obvious of course that you can use even less wide angle lenses, like a 24-70mm or in the range of focal lengths, try to shoot close-ups or more details!

Best months : Being a mountain is not that have any particular seasons when it is preferable to visit it; I would say the fall, spring and summer just to avoid logistical problems due to snow or ice, but the truth is that this is a great place to visit any season!

How to get there : From the Ring Road, take the detour road that begins a few kilometers after we passed the intersection leading to the town of Hofn; this diversion, besides being marked with a sign (Stokksnes) is easily recognizable as it starts 100/200 meters before the first tunnel you find. As further information, this deviation is about 10km after you have started the climb to the north and have stopped going to the East: it is not difficult to find it I assure you. Once on the road all you have to do is go to the end, will take you straight to the side of the lagoon (length: about 5km).

Visits : Personally I've been there three times and I have never paid, but I've heard of other photographers who stopped at the bar and he was asked to pay some € to access the location; I have not paid for the simple reason that I have always found the bar closed when I went there, but honestly there being some kind of reviews it seems quite absurd that someone you place a bar near the end of the road and pretend that you pay a certain amount to go beyond; I am reading on the internet I realized that the road is private and so it would be really absurd, even if it is some €.
