Hrafnabjargarfoss is a large waterfall, hidden off the beaten track. This waterfall is located in a big lava field and in the river are large pot holes created over many years.
Ingvarafossar are 2 other waterfalls in the same river. We walk from Aldeyjarfoss to get to these waterfalls.
Aldeyjarfoss is surrounded with lava and basalt columns. Many people say that it is the most beautiful fall in Iceland, we let you judge for yourself.
The final waterfall we visit on this tour is Gošafoss. It is a beautiful waterfall with a unique bow shape.
