Djúpavíkurfoss 

Djúpavíkurfoss is a hidden gem nestled in the rugged landscape of the Westfjords region of Iceland. This breathtaking waterfall tumbles down over a cliff, ending approximately 160 meters below before it flows into the Atlantic Sea. From the seaside at Djúpavík, you can get a stunning view of the waterfall with the small town of Djúpavík in the foreground. The river Djúpavíkurá, which feeds the falls, originates from a plateau with several small lakes and mountains reaching up to 524 meters. Djúpavíkurfoss is located directly on road 643 in the village of Djúpavík, near the Reykjarfjörður fjord. If you’re looking for a unique and off-the-beaten-path destination, Djúpavíkurfoss is definitely worth a visit.

Bjarnarfoss

Bjarnarfoss is a 262 ft (80 m) waterfall located in the Snæfellsnes Peninsula of the Western Region. Bjarnarfoss is one of the tallest waterfalls in Iceland but receives little attention. What makes Bjarnarfoss a worthy waterfall to visit is its beautiful misty drop as it crashes onto the ground below. At the bottom of the waterfall is where the volcanic basalt columns line the cliffside. The columns look like man-made castle walls. This area, known as the Búðahraun lava fields, was formed by the now extinct Mælifell volcano. This is not to be confused with Maelifell in the Southern Region. The Western Region’s Mælifell is viewable from the waterfall and no longer active. The area and beautiful Bjarnarfoss are listed on the Nature Conservation Register.
