Hraunfossar (Lava Falls)

Hraunfossar waterfalls, also known as Lava Falls in western Iceland, was formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 metres from of a lava field which flowed from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjökull. Today the waterfall flows from the ledges of less porous lava rock into the Hvítá river.
