Háifoss - Search Nearby - Added by Kyle Szegedi

One of the tallest and most impressive Icelandic waterfalls, Háifoss is located in the highlands of Iceland and doesn't receive many visitors, its likely that you could visit this area and have the whole place to yourself!

The waterfall Háifoss is situated near the volcano Hekla in the south of Iceland. The river Fossá drops 122m making Háifoss the third highest waterfall on the island. 

To get to Háifoss waterfall from Reykjavik drive east on ring-road Highway 1, past the town of Selfoss. Take a left turn on road 30 and head about 18km and make a right turn on road 32. After driving for another 40km on road 32, you should see a small sign for road 332 and Háifoss. Although the road 332 is not labeled a (4x4) F-road it is very rocky and bumpy, I wouldn't really recommend trying it without a 4x4 vehicle. Once you reach the end of road 332 there is a small gravel parking lot and a trail that leads down to the waterfall. 

The cliff next to the waterfall is very steep and is not roped off at all, be careful! If you follow the trail along the ridge line you'll see a fence with a ladder over it, hop the fence and look for some orange trail markers that can be followed to the base of the waterfall!
