Our last day on the road before returning to Reykjavik. Mostly driving but we did stop to see a pair of wonderful waterfalls, and a raging stream. But first a wonderful hot spring.
Deildartunguhver is the most powerful hot spring in Europe. Billowing clouds of steam rise from scalding water bubbling from the ground. and of course a new spa Krauma nearby offers sleek hot pools, a cold pool and two steam rooms.
Then the picturesque twin waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss. Hraunfossar is a fascinating series of waterfalls seemingly originating in a field without a river of lake. The water is actually streaming through rivulets in the Hallmundarhraun lave field. Another waterfall nearby is Barnafoss, which is more like a series of rapids caused by the water of Hvita entering a narrow passage.
Nearby we stopped to watch a raging stream run down from a nearby mountain.
