Hjálparfoss (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈçaul̥parˌfɔsː]) is one of several waterfalls in the south of Iceland situated in the lava fields north of the stratovolcano Hekla near the point where the rivers Fossá and Þjórsá join. Hjálparfoss is located about 30 kilometres (19 mi) east of the village Flúðir and can be reached by a gravel road off Route 32 that winds through the Vikrar lava fields. About 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Hjálparfoss lies Þjófafoss; further east are Háifoss on the Fossá and Tangafoss on the Þjórsá.

Just downstream from Hjálparfoss is Iceland's second-largest hydroelectric power station, Búrfellsstöð.

  • Visited while in Iceland during July. Waterfalls and the surrounding scenery is pretty, for sure. What's not pretty is your face and any exposed part of your body that's been feasted upon by evil...

  • This double waterfall is a little out there, but worth a visit. When we went, there was barely a soul. There are no WC in the area, so be sure you use the restroom somewhere.

  • Wow! Amazing!!! We were there after 6pm and all alone! This is the most beautiful rock formations I have ever seen. The canyon walls look like dragons rising up out of the ground. The waterfall is impressive. A must do!
  • Absolutely beautiful falls. You can walk down almost all the way to the falls. Not super busy.
