The Kornsa Waterfalls (Kornsá Waterfalls; I counted at least 7 of them) were situated in one of the larger side canyons on the west side of Vatnsdalur.
Leyningsfoss, which literally means “hidden falls” was an intimate waterfall that was definitely off-the-beaten path in a re-planted forest by Siglufjörður.
Migandifoss was an unexpected ocean-plunging waterfall that we encountered during a scenic drive from Akureyri to Siglufjörður in the north of Tröllaskagi.
…it’s hard to convey that awesome feeling that I was witnessing something special, and there were hundreds of other people that have made this hike…
Slaedufoss (Slæðufoss) was a roadside waterfall just a short scramble away from the unpaved Laugarfellsvegur Road on the waterfall-laced Laugará Stream.
Faxi, Stuðlafoss, and the Laugará Waterfalls near Laugarfell make up part of the waterfall circle, and they were the big surprise of our August 2021 trip.

Nykurhylsfoss (Sveinsstekksfoss or Fossárdafoss) was a hidden waterfall that surprised us with its view across the Berufjörður in the southeast of Iceland.
Folaldafoss was a quaint waterfall in a remote area of the Eastfjords upslope from Berufjörður along the infamous Axarvegur Road, which leads up to Öxi Pass
Morsarfoss (Morsárfoss) is now the new tallest waterfall in Iceland at over 228m tall, which would have surpassed Glymur, but there are issues with this…
Bruarfoss (Brúarfoss) was a unique waterfall that seemingly fell onto itself in its center, and we witnessed it from a bridge that fittingly fronted it.
