Barnafoss is a beautiful waterfall located on the Hvitá river. Barnafoss is also next to its sister waterfall Hraunfossar, though the two cannot be more different. While technically a waterfall, Barnafoss acts more like a series of rapids that rushes through the bedrock on the edge of the Hallmundarhraun lava field. At one point in time, a natural bridge stretched over the waterfall, but it has been lost to time.
Hangandifoss is one of the tallest waterfalls in Iceland. The most consistent measurement from online sources cites Hangandifoss being 123 m in height, and however, it ranges from 110 m to 130 m. The name Hangandifoss is similar to Hengifoss, which both names translate to “Hanging Waterfall.”
Gluggafoss, also known as Merkjárfoss, is a two-tiered waterfall located on the Merkjá River in the Southern Region. The Merkjá River has many beautiful waterfalls, but Gluggafoss is the most significant. Gluggafoss is increasing in popularity, but it is still a relatively overlooked waterfall.
Brúarárfoss, also known as Brúarfoss, is titled “Iceland’s Bluest Waterfall.” It’s a small waterfall at only around 10 ft (3 m) in height, but it’s known for its horseshoe-like shape and vivid blue water. The glacial river Brúará creates the waterfall and is sourced from the Langjökull glacier. The bright blue waters are only exacerbated as Brúarárfoss plunges into the crevice that it creates within the dark volcanic rock.
