Located in the northern Highlands of Iceland, the waterfall Aldeyjarfoss is fed by the glacial river Skjálfandafljót that originates at Vatnajökull, the largest icecap in Iceland (and in Europe).
The judge in a waterfall beauty contest in Iceland has a tough task. There are so many of these cascading beauties competing for attention that one has to guard against foss-fatigue (foss = waterfall, in Icelandic). With its striking flanks of crystallized basalt columns and a bowl-like receptacle, Aldeyjarfoss is a masterpiece of geological art, a sight to treasure.
Also seen below is Hrafnabjargarfoss (hrafn = raven, bjarg = rock), another small waterfall nearby.
