Iceland is full of stunning waterfalls. Hraunfosser is in a category all its own. I first walked over to see Barnafoss, the other waterfall that leads into the river. While this is a very powerful and interesting waterfall, walking over to Hraunfosser took my breath...More
The waterfalls are located on a detour from road #1 - some 30 kilometers east of the road - just follow road #50 and then road #518.
These two waterfall must be seen to believe such beauty can exist.
Somehow overlooked by tourists, these are...More
Beautiful falls! Actually there are 2: Hraunfossar with water coming from the lava fields and the forceful Barnafoss. Quite crowded during the high season... There's a cute small cafetaria at the entrance where you can buy coffee, soda's, ice and bars.
Although the Hraunfossar falls are stunning, Barnafoss (rapids) steals the show with it's amazing force and brilliant blue water. As others have said, worth the drive and one of our favourite sights during our holiday.
We almost skipped this as it's a little out of the way, but it was one of the most beautiful sights of iceland! In September the colors were gorgeous and the blue water amazing. Worth the little extra drive.
And a waterfall called Barnafoss next to it... The tour guide told us stories on the Barnafoss on how the mom and dad lost their children cause they fell into the water and the different myths around the stories. Anyway you get to see water...More
We went here as part of our super jeep tour & I've never seen anything like the wall of waterfalls. The water seems to come right out of the riverbank. The views from all around the river are great and there is a good amount...More
The waterfalls were beautiful and unusual because there were multiple ones at the same location. We took numerous pictures. There is somethink more striking when a waterfall has multiple location next to each other rather than one big one.

I did this almost that exact trip (we didn't do the crater, but we did Grimsey Island) and found ten days was perfect. Although we did this beginning the first week of June, 2017. I would be very worried about road conditions in March. Even at the time we went there were high chunks (miles) of the Ring Road that were "gone" (under construction and only gravel).
And we Airbnb'ed it all the way around and had a fabulous time. Good luck and enjoy!
