There are two waterfalls , just close to each other and in walkin distance. There is a possibility to watch the waterfalls from bith sides. A bridge is crossing the water. There is a small restauarant to have a snack. Parkings is for free.

I think this waterfall was my favourite while visiting Iceland. Quite different with the powerful Barnafoss at the head rushing through the rock and then the main river powers down while Hraunfossar enters from a side. Different and attractive.

This was one of the last stops on our way back to Reykjavik and despite the cold, rainy day bringing us down a bit, the falls were amazing. We didn't get pestered for a parking fee like some of the other reviews mentioned. Walk back...More

Nice stop for photos and a place to stretch your legs. Path is easy and accessible to everyone. The rapids were interesting. There is a restaurant very close although we didn't try it

Kind of unique in the falls category in Iceland. The falls are actually water pouring out of a river bank wall about the length of 2 football pitches. Cool view for a quick stop, but not a must see.

The many runoffs contribute to a most spectacular display of waterfalls emptying into the river when even not being in spate have awesome power. Parking is easy as is the short walk up to the Barnafoss falls following the river upstream. We were on an...More
