Hraunfossar & Deildartunguhver

Hraunfossar

In the morning we continue the trip for the last area before we head back to Reykjavík, from Fossatún Guesthouse we drive to Hraunfossar, 35km with 30 minutes drive.

Hraunfossar is a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 metres out of the Hallmundarhraun, a lava field which flowed from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjökull. The waterfalls pour into the Hvítá river from ledges of less porous rock in the lava. The name comes from the Icelandic word for lava and the word for waterfalls. The Hraunfossar are situated near Húsafell and Reykholt and the Víðgelmir lava tube is close by.

Deildartunguhver

Then continue to Deildartunguhver, 24km awal from Hraunfossar about 20 minutes drive.

Deildartunguhver is a hot spring in Reykholtsdalur, Iceland. It is characterized by a very high flow rate for a hot spring (180 liters/second) and water emerges at 97 °C. It is the highest-flow hot spring in Europe. Some of the water is used for heating, being piped 34 kilometers to Borgarnes and 64 kilometers to Akranes.

After finished, we then drive to the capital city of Reykjavík for the last night stay in Iceland as for tommorow we flight out back to home via Amsterdam. In Reykjavík we just stroll around the town. See us on the next trip.

Here are random photo album collection taken not specified to any specific place we are visiting, mostly taken on the side of the road. Think we grouped into one album and share it.
