Highlights from the Place

Ófærufoss is located in the river Nyðri-Ófæra in central Iceland and falls in two cascades into the Eldgjá canyon. Elgjá is a 40 km long eruptive fissure, approximately 600 metres wide in many places and up to 200 metres deep. It last erupted in the year 934. As it is one of the waterfalls in the Highlands and close to a mountain road, it can be accessed from the beginning of July to the beginning of September. It is highly advised to drive a well equipped 4×4 WD SUV. From the car park in Eldgjá it is about a 3 km walk to the waterfall depending on how close one wants to get.
