A traveler can find many beautiful and unusual natural phenomena in West Iceland. Among attractions there are the waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss. These waterfalls are located on the way to Husafell and are easy to access.
The Hraunfossar Falls are clear; cold springs that well up through the lava running in falls and rapids into Hvita River. Evolving through recorded history Barnafoss has a sad and touching history.
These waterfalls are not among the most magnificent and breathtaking waterfalls in Iceland but have a lot of charm. Hraunfossar have become somewhat of a tourist destination with good facilities provided to make a stop and enjoy the area.
