Dynkur (Buðarhálsfoss)

Dynkur (Búðarhálsfoss) is a wide and powerful segmented waterfall on the Þjórsá River, but accessing it required a very scary 4wd adventure in the Highlands.


Haifoss (Háifoss) was once the 2nd tallest waterfall in Iceland at 122m, but it’s the surroundings with a companion waterfall that really made it special.


Hjalparfoss (‘Help Falls’) is a unique, easy-to-visit, double waterfall that joined at its base into a very large plunge pool surrounded by lava formations.


Thjofafoss (Þjófafoss) is a wide and milky waterfall on the Þjórsá River beneath Mt Búrfell. The ‘Thieves Falls’ was an apparent drowning pool for theft crimes.

Gjarfoss and the Gjain Waterfalls

Gjarfoss and the Gjain Waterfalls (or Gjárfoss and the Gjáin Waterfalls) were our excuses to visit a lush yet geologically active area near the Stöng Farm.


AEgissidufoss (Ægissiðufoss) was a wide waterfall on the Ytri Rangá River that I found interesting because I was able to photograph it with the active Mt Hekla.


Arbæjarfoss is one of those waterfalls I’m not sure if there’s an official way to visit it. The photograph above is the view we got when we didn’t think we would be trespassing…
