Hraunfossar / Lava Waterfalls

Today it is cold in Borgarfjord, the thermometer shows -10 celsius, the sun is shining and the wind is still. The view today towards the glaciers is magnificent…..

Only about 15 to 20 minutes drive from Snorrastofa, are the amazing waterfalls "Hraunfossar".

The water flows from the nearby glaciers, Eiríksjökull and Langjökull, through/ under the lava and flows out again by "Hvítá" ( The white river). Hvítá gets it milky color from the glaciers minerals.   Visit the waterfalls any time of year, they are truly worth it.
