I think this waterfall was my favourite while visiting Iceland. Quite different with the powerful Barnafoss at the head rushing through the rock and then the main river powers down while Hraunfossar enters from a side. Different and attractive.

This was one of the last stops on our way back to Reykjavik and despite the cold, rainy day bringing us down a bit, the falls were amazing. We didn't get pestered for a parking fee like some of the other reviews mentioned. Walk back...More

A beautiful area to stop and see a wonderful waterfall area. Short walking paths lead you straight to the falls for some amazing views!!!

Nice stop for photos and a place to stretch your legs. Path is easy and accessible to everyone. The rapids were interesting. There is a restaurant very close although we didn't try it

Kind of unique in the falls category in Iceland. The falls are actually water pouring out of a river bank wall about the length of 2 football pitches. Cool view for a quick stop, but not a must see.

The many runoffs contribute to a most spectacular display of waterfalls emptying into the river when even not being in spate have awesome power. Parking is easy as is the short walk up to the Barnafoss falls following the river upstream. We were on an...More

I knew Iceland was full of waterfalls and geological features but this actually took my breath away. We could have sat and stared at the vista all day - the noise was so loud and yet so calming and mesmerising.
