Step into a world of wonder at Svartifoss, a.k.a. the ‘black falls’. Thanks to the hexagonal basalt columns that surround it and lay shattered at its bottom, you’ll feel like you’re standing in a page of a fairy-tale. And despite being just 65ft tall, its foaming frothy falls promise to transport you to an otherworldly place. Bask in Iceland’s intrepid outdoors as you hike along trails leading to the waterfall, where you'll be surrounded by fields of vibrant wildflowers and enchanting wooden bridges. You may even catch a glimpse of the nearby Vatnajökull glacier. And if you're feeling particularly adventurous,
why not spend the day exploring the surrounding area’s hidden waterfalls and caves that make Svartifoss even more magical? For Svartifoss isn't just a beautiful natural wonder, it's also a testament to Iceland's rich cultural heritage. The unique basalt columns that form the waterfall have inspired many Icelandic architects and artists, including the famous Hallgrímskirkja church in Reykjavik. So, pack your hiking boots and prepare to be enchanted.
