    Hraunfossar and Barnafoss

    by Melanie88 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hraunfossar and Barnafoss are magnifent waterfalls - a definite must-see if you are in Iceland. Located east of the town of Borgarnes, the Hraunfossar waterfalls comprised of numerous springs of water that well up from under the edge of the lava field Hallmundarhraun and flow into the river Hvita. Barnafoss is also called Children's Falls because it is said that two children fell to their deaths at the falls.
    From Rekyvik travel north-east approx 46 miles - Falls are located east of Reykholt

    "On the magnificent Reykjanes peninsula the continents of Europe and North America meet both in cultural meaning and geographical meaning. The two tectonic plates shift and grind together at the tip of the Reykjaens peninsula. It is a spectacular meetingplace of land, sea and sky. It is recognized as a unique vacation and business destination. The beautiful seaside community of Reykanesbaer combines all the charm of a small town with an endless variety of recreational and cultural activities. Reykjanes rich geographical wonders, the saga of Icelandic Vikings and fishermen, the harnesing of the geothermal power, a unique variety of shops and galleries and a spectacular assortment of natural parks and geothermal areas combine to provide a truly unrivaled place for your next getaway. Reykjanes City is the 5th largest community in Iceland with 14.000 habitants located only 10 minutes away from the only International airport in Iceland and 30 minutes from the capital Reykjavík.
