Fossarfoss

(Fossárfoss, Sveinstekksfoss)

Fossárfoss (or Sveinstekksfoss) is a waterfall in the Southeast of Iceland. Fossárfoss is the last waterfall in the valley Fossárdalur before the river Fossá ends in the Atlantic ocean. The water cascades down from the mountains  which results in this beautiful fall with a total height of 15 meter.

The waterfall is located a few hundred meters from road 1 in Berufjörður. For a good close by view you have to take the exit to road 9669 (Eyjolfsstadir).

Following the river upstream for appr. 60 minutes, part by car and part by walk you will find another amazing waterfall in the river Fossa, called Múlafoss. I really love the looks of this waterfall.

There are several other waterfalls to be found in the valley Fossárdalur:
– Stekkásfoss, a small waterfall near Eyjólfsstaðir Guesthouse
– Two unnamed waterfalls at the Fálkaás valley at the end of the trail
– Gongufossinn, a wide and powerful fall, but I can’t find the exact location. It must be somewhere at the end of the valley
