Öxarárfoss Waterfall
📍 Iceland
The Öxarárfoss Waterfall is a breathtaking natural wonder located in Thingvellir, Iceland. The waterfall is fed by the mighty Öxará River and cascades over the edge of the Thingvallavatn lake into a deep, crystal clear pool below. The breathtaking cascade of this thunderous body of water is an amazing sight to behold and an experience that will remain etched in your memories for years to come. Take a short stroll through the nearby Kambar Trail for some amazing views. One of the unique features of this waterfall is its impressive rainbow that appears against the backdrop of sky blue waters. Look out for the historic Almannagjá Fault, a rift valley that marks the boundary of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Take some time to explore the nature reserve and make sure you bring your camera, as the sighting of Arctic terns, swans, hawks and seals will surely be a highlight of your visit.
