Fagrifoss, Iceland
August 18, 2014

This is the eleventh of twenty locations in Southern Iceland that are in my forthcoming guide "A Landscape Photographer's Tour of Southern Iceland" and this series of blog posts are to whet your appetite for Iceland as a photographic destination. The guide provides the same kinds of information my UK guides provide, including maps, 360 degree interactive panoramic photographs, directions, and more.

Fagrifoss is is on the edge of Iceland's southern highlands. Unlike some of the more accessible waterfalls along route 1, to get to Fagrifoss means driving along one of Iceland's 4 wheel drive only "F" roads and a challenging river crossing.

The waterfall is along the Geirlandsá river and incorporates twin streams and an unusual sloping fan shaped base. It?s name simply means "Beautiful Waterfall".

Fagrifoss is part of the Katla Geopark and lies just outside the Vatnajökull National. The road to Fagrifoss eventually reaches the Lakagígar craters, a spectacular 25 kilometre (15.5 miles) long row of more than 100 craters formed from one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history.
