Háifoss waterfall

Háifoss waterfall

Located near the volcano Hekla in the south of Iceland, Háifoss is a 122 meters high waterfall. Situated in Fossá river it’s the second largest waterfall in the country. The road is very rough, a jeep or other 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommend.

The road to the waterfall is called Road 332. It’s 7.0km long starting off Þjórsárdalsvegur road. The road is gravel, too bumpy with lots of potholes. The road is very rough--only try driving it in a 2wd car, if you're planning to buy a new car. It’s not a road for small vehicles. Here you need a good 4X4 vehicle.

On the south-side above the waterfalls there is also a parking lot. The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed! There are many excellent photo opportunities. Háifoss is one of those waterfalls that you just have to see to believe. This thing is absolutely stunning. Don't forget your camera with lots of film/memory, fully charged batteries and an empty memory card!
