It’s almost been a year since visiting Iceland, and I miss the scenery. Sometimes it can be bleak though, especially as you’re driving around the Ring Road (the main road around the island). There aren’t a whole lot of forests on the island. But there are a significant number of waterfalls. There are so many, it becomes easy to ignore some of them.
For example, there are a number of taller waterfalls along the Ring Road. Some of them are surprisingly beautiful, but there aren’t any designated places to stop. In some instances, though, I was one of the few people on that stretch of the road, so I essentially just stopped the car in the road. (You can often see the road ahead for a significant distance.) This waterfall was found along the road between Akureyri and Egilsstaðir, closer to Egilsstaðir. That is where I noticed most of these “roadside” falls. There weren’t many of them along the southern portion of the island.
1) This waterfall is found along the Ring Road between Akureyri and Egilsstaðir. If I remember correctly, this waterfall was on the left side of the road as I was headed east. There were at least two other waterfalls before and after this that were easy to photograph. There were others I didn’t stop to officially view.
