The waterfalls of Hraunfossar is a real treasure. It is best described as a collection of countless creeks and cascades small and big streaming out of the Hallmundarhraun lavafield over a distance of about 1 km. The colours in the river are impressive, sometimes dazzling and turquoise but occasionally milky white. Always an adorable scene worth enjoying and photographing.
Barnafoss is only three min. walk from Hraunfossar. Here, the Hvítá river flows in a narrow canyon and with it´s violent force forms natural sculptures and stone arches in the rocks. Many Icelandic folktales are associated with Barnafoss.
