Hrauneyjafoss

Hrauneyjafoss is an intriguing waterfall in the south of Iceland. A perfect waterfall for shooting pictures. Hrauneyjafoss is a 29 m high waterfall in the river Tungnaá. In 1981 a power station was built not far from the fall with a capacity of 210,000 kW.

The flow of the water in the river Tungnaá can be low, but at this waterfall it gives a special touch perfect for pictures.

Hrauneyjafoss is located in/near the golden circle: driving East on road 26 you will cross the river Tungnaá, just before the power plant. From the East side of the river there is a trail (2 kilometers) going to the canyon Tungnaárgljúfur and waterfall.

Some pictures of Hrauneyjafoss look similar to Hnubbafossar or Tungnaárfellsfoss. Maybe people are mistaking about the location because both waterfalls are in the river Tungnaá only 13 kilometers from eachother.
