Hike: Waterfall lane

Hike along Fjarðará river

A pleasant, easy walk from the heart of the town along the river Fjarðará to Fjarðarselsvirkjun.
The hiking trail runs partly along the Fjarðará river, into a small forestry area, below a rock belt on the south side of the river. Plenty of vegetation, streams, waterfalls and beautiful mountain views along this pleasant hiking trail. Berries are of plenty; blueberries, bilberries and cranberries can be found in late August or until the ground freezes.
For those who want to see more of the waterfalls of Fjarðará, it is recommended to continue from Fjarðarsel along the marked path that runs along the river on the south side. The route leads up to Gufufoss waterfall and further up the monument in Neðri Stafur, the elevation gain is about 300 meters.
Beautiful mountain views, waterfalls, vegetation and history is a fun mix that makes this hike unforgettable.
