Hraunfossar Waterfall

Hraunfossar, which translates to Lava Falls, is beautiful and a real treasure. The color of the water is sometimes turquoise but other times it’s milky white. The waterfalls of Hraunfossar are a collection of many creeks and cascades small and big streaming out of the lava.

How to get there:

Hraunfossar is about one and a half-hour drive from Reykjavík up north. From Reykjavik, you are going to want to take road 1 up to a bridge near Borgarnes where you turn on to road 50 and from road 50 you go on road 518 until you get there!

Things to do:

After exploring the beautiful area and waterfall, check out Barnafossar and Deildartunguhver.
