  • Simple, quiet, and gorgeous. There's some great picnic table spots. Be sure to catch the plaque nearby commemorating a wonderful couple.
  • Nice waterfalls but not spectacular. If travelling to Haifoss I would recommend to pay it a visit, but I would not drive only for this waterfall, there are much more beautiful waterfalls in Iceland. The waterfall is easy to reach for each car. Only a small gravel road.
  • Hjálparfoss, the waterfall of help, is a small but exceptionally beautiful waterfall in the valley Þjórsárdalur. Surrounded by basalt column small cliffs in a beautiful spring fed river it is a clear and clean waterfall that you enjoy watching and photographing. If you are traveling in the southern part of Iceland you should stop by this waterfall only a few meters from the main road.
  • Nice little waterfall. Very interesting lava formations
  • A Hidden Treasure to visit....Gotta Love It Follow me on Instagram: uwe-foto and photorepublicnoosa
