Hraunfossar is very pretty and worth visiting. The water flows down a lava field which is covered with vegetation and emerges into the river. The fall is long and wide but not high. It's worth seeing for some interesting photos. Barnafoss is in the same...More

The waterfall itself was gret, but the viewing platforms were very far away from the waterfall because they are way higher. It would have been nice to see the waterfalls from a bit closer. Good facilities. Plenty of parking space.

Unusual since the falls are so wide and there's another area with gushing water that's pretty cool but not much else to see here.
