Glanni is a beautiful waterfall in West Iceland, located close to the Grabrokarhraun lava field and the village Bifrost. Situated nearby, in the middle of the lava field, is a mesmerising oasis.

Explore this area of Iceland on a self drive tour.

Glanni waterfall is small but drops in three multi-layered tires. The word 'Glanni' means brightness, or that which shines, and the waterfall is named after the bright colour of its water. 

The river that feeds Glanni, Norðurá, is amongst Iceland’s most popular fishing rivers. It is teaming with fish and salmon are commonly spotted jumping in the waterfall, up the man-made steps that have been constructed to ease their journey.
