Falkafoss

(Fálkafoss)

Fálkafoss is a small waterfall in the Northeast of Iceland not far from Bakkafjordur. Fálkafoss is a waterfall in the river Miðfjarðará where fishing for salmon is very popular.

From road 1 take road 85 to Vopnafjordur and go on to Bakkafjordur. Stay on road 85 after Bakkafjordur. Turn left at the farm Miðfjörður. With a 4WD you can drive further along the river  Miðfjarðará there for about 3 km. There should Fálkafoss be visible. I don’t see the jeep trail on a map after the farm, otherwise you have to walk further on for 3 kilometers. I can’t find any other information or photo’s of the waterfall……

Further on the river Miðfjarðará there are two other small waterfalls: Baejarfoss and Sniðfoss.
