Aldeyjarfoss is located in the Skjálfandafljót river in North Iceland, it is 20 metres high and tumbles through a narrow passage into a wide basin. There is a strong contrast between the black of the basalt columns and the white waters of the falls, making it one of the most photogenic waterfalls in Iceland. It is in the valley of Bárðardalur, at the edge of the Iceland Highlands, the starting point of the road Sprengisandur which leads all the way to south Iceland. The road in Bárðardalur is a gravel road and 4×4 WD is recommended. From the car park, there is a hiking trail approximately 10 minutes walk to Aldeyjarfoss.
