Fagrifoss literally means 'The Beautiful Waterfall'.Credit: Wikimedia, Creative Commons. Photo by Nave111.

Fagrifoss (the Beautiful Waterfall) is located in Southeast Iceland near the Lakagígar volcanic region. The falls rest along the 4x4 road F206, approximately 24 km (15 mi) from the small town Kirkjubæjarklaustur and 40 km (25 mi) from the Laki crater. 

Explore this area while on a self drive tour in Iceland or take a specific tour of Iceland's majestic waterfalls.

What makes Fagrifoss particularly attractive is its smooth brink and the segmented plunge in which its lower end slants, giving the falling water at its base a beautiful fan shape. Only adding to the falls beauty is its contrast with the raw landscapes in which it is nestled.

To reach the Fagrifoss, travellers must cross a small river and a 4x4 vehicle is needed for the crossing.
