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 accompanied, guided tour so fees for parking was not a problem but beware.

I knew Iceland was full of waterfalls and geological features but this actually took my breath away. We could have sat and stared at the vista all day - the noise was so loud and yet so calming and mesmerising.

Hraunfossar is unique and beautiful, and has a newer well maintained easy trail system the runs through the park. Especially beautiful in the fall when the leaves change!

Parking: Average size lot. I have heard of issues with parking here - so check out regulations if somethings changed recently.
Trail(s): >2-3km Easy flat paved trails with observation areas that run around park.
Traffic: Average.
