Waterfalls of Iceland

The numerous waterfalls of Iceland are part of the wonders of nature in this region. The notable falls in Iceland include Dettifoss in the north of the country, which is the most powerful in Europe. Selfoss, Goðafoss (God's Falls) and Aldeyjarfoss can also be found in the north.
In the south, Gullfoss (Golden Falls) are a very popular tourist sight. Skaftafell National Park contains Svartifoss (Black Falls), which are surrounded by basalt columns. Also well-known are Háifoss (High Falls), Gjáin with its large number of small waterfalls, Skógafoss, and Seljalandsfoss. Ófærufoss used to be noted for the impressive natural bridge which stood above the falls, but it collapsed in 1993.
In the west of Iceland, there are to be found the Hraunfossar and Barnafoss in a lovely setting of birchwoods. In the Westfjords the river Dynjandi flows like a fan over Fjallfoss.
The highest waterfall is Glymur at 198m, in the Hvalfjörður area.
