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 to the other falls as well, it's not far and they are really cool as well.

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

We stopped here on the way to Husafell. The walk was a nice way to stretch one's legs. The falls are not big but very pleasant and there was plenty of parking on the June day we stopped here, even with two buses. Definitely worth a stop, but not worth a long drive out of one's way to see.

We have seen dozens of waterfalls in Iceland, but this one was different. It seemed to coming out of a lava wall. There are walkways and paths throughout the area that make it easy to view the "falls" from different directions. It is definitely worth a visit, but be ready for a different kind of waterfall. There is a restaurant and gift shop near the waterfall.

Hraunfossar : water fall, in true sense it is water flowing . It is a series of small waterfalls, hardly 2 meter high at some places but spread over ce of about 900 metres. This is flowing thro' Hallmundarhraun, a lava field which flowed from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjökull. Thats makes it special.

could be a very good spot for landscape . One can get plenty variety across 270 deg. atleast.


The waterfalls get into less porous rock and goes into the Hvítá river .
