A nice small waterfall backed by black basalt columns. You'll find it on the way to the Hengifoss Waterfall.

It was all about going on a self-drive vacation. The most unique way to be able to just stop to see what and when you would like. Around every bend in the road you will see the most amazing and exciting things if you are...More

My wife and I traveled on holiday to eastern Iceland and visiting Hengifoss was on our must see list. We hiked the Hengifoss Trail and came upon Litlanesfoss. Incredible, especially given the amazing basaltic columns. The pictures do not do the views in person credit....More

This waterfall was spectacular. It was on the Hengifoss trail and simply stunning. The basalt columns were reminiscent of Svartifoss. A must see.

Car parking at the base of the falls, at the side of the river fall out into the lake. This cut away gorge in basalt column cliffs gives you a different perspective at each view point up the climb. A clearly marked path takes you...More

This is a wonderful road provided you're willing to put up with the gravel road and the speeding idiots. The views are spectacular and well worth the effort. Vistas, running streams, waterfalls, black sand beaches, they're all there.

Just of road 931 with a decent parking lot, toilet and garbage bins you can walk an steep hill to the waterfall. The path is challenging, but worth it.

Litlanesfoss is the starter for what is a stunning pair of waterfalls. The hike is challenging in parts but nowhere near impossible and much of the hardest climb is right at the start. Once you’ve got over the initial hump (pun intended) you’re greeted with...More

It may be a bit of a hike, but seeing the beauty and majesty of the inverted, horizontal, curved and diagonal basalt columns is definitely worth the effort.

A nice hike up to the lower falls for an impressive view of the cascade dropping down between huge, columnar basalt walls. The walk up is steep, but taken at a leisurely pace, it will take about 30 minutes to reach the first overlook for...More
