The Hraunfossar Waterfall is located around two hours north of Rekjavík. It is one of Iceland’s less touristy waterfalls, located off the main road.
The water flows through a lava landscape, with dozens of tiny waterfalls created by the streams. These run into the Hvítá River, which is a deep cyan tint. When the surrounding trees and shrubs turn orange in the autumn, this waterfall is exceptionally lovely.
