Post Covid-19 Return to Iceland Itinerary – August 3, 2021 to August 21, 2021

Our 18-day Post COVID-19 Itinerary Covering Most Of Iceland’s Accessible Waterfalls and Popular Sights both Old and New

Urridafoss

Urridafoss (Urriðafoss) is a waterfall on the Þjórsá, Iceland’s longest river. Benefitting from the river’s flow, the falls is the country’s most voluminous.

Kornsa Waterfalls

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.

Migandifoss

Migandifoss was an unexpected ocean-plunging waterfall that we encountered during a scenic drive from Akureyri to Siglufjörður in the north of Tröllaskagi.

Leyningsfoss

Leyningsfoss, which literally means “hidden falls” was an intimate waterfall that was definitely off-the-beaten path in a re-planted forest by Siglufjörður.

“Hvílíkur Dagur Part 2” (Iceland – August 12, 2021 to August 21, 2021)

…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

Slaedufoss (Slæðufoss) was a roadside waterfall just a short scramble away from the unpaved Laugarfellsvegur Road on the waterfall-laced Laugará Stream.

Strutsfoss

Strutsfoss (Strútsfoss) is a towering two-tiered waterfall (20m and 100m) on the Strútsá Stream tucked deep in the Villingadalur arm of Suðurdalur Valley.

Faxi, Studlafoss, and the Laugarfell Waterfalls

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.

Mulafoss

Mulafoss (Múlafoss) is one of many waterfalls by this name, but this one sits under an overlook of the scenic Seyðisfjörður near the pass at Fjarðarheiði.

Studlafoss (Studlagil Canyon)

Studlafoss (Stuðlafoss) is a waterfall that greets hikers for the Stuðlagil Canyon trail, which was made possible by the controversial Kárahnjúkar Project.

Nykurhylsfoss (Fossarfoss, Sveinsstekksfoss)

Nykurhylsfoss (Sveinsstekksfoss or Fossárdafoss) was a hidden waterfall that surprised us with its view across the Berufjörður in the southeast of Iceland.

Flogufoss

Flogufoss (Flögufoss) was an obscure and eccentric hidden waterfall in Iceland’s East as it featured a natural bridge while backed by curious crowned peaks.

Folaldafoss

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

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 (Bruararfoss)

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.

“Hvílíkur Dagur Part 1” (Iceland – August 3, 2021 to August 11, 2021)

I was thinking that it might force us to recalibrate our 1-5 rating scale, and it certainly got us to reconsider our current Top 10 Iceland Waterfalls list
