Natural Wonders of Iceland

Waterfalls continued

One might wonder how many ways water can fall and here in Iceland, there are thousands. Every one has its own magic andvtoday we added two more to our list. 


Hraunfossar is a natural miracle as natural springs cascade water drum under the surface down volcanic cliffs int to river. The magic was further enhanced by the beautiful fall colors of the arctic birch and r fish shrubs. 

Barnafoss has a more tragic story as it translates to children’s falls.  The legend has it and hat on Christmas Eve, two kids vanished over the stove arch that built a narural bridge across the river. Their mother in her grief, ordered the bridge demolished. 


Before we reached the falls, our tour stopped at a geothermal complex to experience naturally cooked eggs and lava bread baked solely with steam. Quite the experience to watch the bubbling water cook eggs. 

After that, we stopped at the world’s largest geothermal power plant generating 300mgh of power and hot water for the city of Reykjavik. 

All in all a fantastic day which was crowned with a fabulous meal of cured salmon, rack of lamb and chocolate cake. I’ll let the images talk.

  1. The wonders of our world and how we can put them to use without destroying our environment. Awesome. And, that meal looked good enough to eat! 🙂
