Háifoss (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈhauːɪˌfɔsː]) is a waterfall situated near the volcano Hekla in southern Iceland. The waterfall Granni is next to it. The river Fossá, a tributary of Þjórsá, drops here from a height of 122 m. This is the fourth highest waterfall of the island, after Morsárfoss, Glymur and Hengifoss.Find out how to plan Skalholt trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
From the historical farm Þjóðveldisbærinn Stöng, which was destroyed by a volcanic eruption of Hekla in the Middle Ages and reconstructed, it is possible to hike to the waterfall along the Fossá (5 to 6 hours both directions). Above the waterfall, there is also a parking lot, to allow hiking to be done in the other direction.

Wow, it is one of the most beautiful Waterfalls in Iceland. We had drive 6 kilometers on a dirt road, it is worth the drive and the time.

Stunning waterfall to visit. The road up there is loose stones so is a bit of a challenge to drive but it's definitely worth the trip!
I loved this waterfall. There are so many in Iceland but this one has something magical and furthermore it is not crowded as other waterfalls.
