Háifoss and Grannifoss, Iceland
July 15, 2014

This is the second of twenty locations in Southern Iceland that are in my forthecoming 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.

Háifoss is located just on the South Western edge of the Icelandic highlands.

At 122 meters (400 feet) it is Icelands second highest waterfall, the highest waterfall being Glymur at 196 meters (643 feet). The name Háifoss actuall means tall waterfall.

Seltun, Iceland

What makes this location even more spectacular is that adjacent to Háifoss is another waterfall, Grannifoss whose name means neighbour.

There is an excellent viewpoint overlooking Háifoss and Grannifoss, though it is at the edge of a cliff that plunges down to the valley floor so may not be suitable for those with a fear of heights.
