Hraunfossar
The peculiar Hraunfossar waterfall is located on the 518 east of Húsafell.
From the northern shore water spouts into the Hvita river through underground canals in the porous layer of the Hallmundarhraun lavafield which covers a hard and impregnable underground.
 
Just up-river of the Hraunfossar is the Barnafoss, where according to legend two boys drowned when they tried to negotiate a natural bridge.
The mother threw a spell on the bridge which collapsed soon after during an earthquake.
 
Nowadays there is a sturdy foot bridge over the fall and we crossed that without problems when we visited this beautyful place on a rare sunny morning in June 2015.
