Aldeyarfoss Waterfall

Aldeyjarfoss Waterfall

One of North Iceland’s best photography sight

Highlights: Aldeyarfoss waterfall, Hrafnarbjargarfoss Waterfall, Ullarfoss Waterfall, Bárðardalur rural area, Skjálfandafljót river. 

This is a Private Tour and we are flexible when we start and how long the tour is.   It is great to enjoy sunset or sunrise at the waterfall.     Pick up is included from hotels/guesthouse in Lake Mývatn area.   And it is possible to meet and start the tour from Goðafoss if guest are coming from Akureyri or other areas.

Aldeyjarfoss waterfall has geologically interesting surroundings. Tumbling through a narrow passage into a wide basin, with black basalt columns that provide a stark contrast against the thrashing white foaming water, making it one of Iceland’s photographic gems.

Aldeyjarfoss is one of most impressive waterfalls on the Skjálfandafljót River’s route from Iceland´s biggest glacier the Vatnajökull glacier.

During winter the hike from the parking can be 2-3 km each way all depending on road and snow condition.   The hike is not demanding but there are small hills we go up on the way to Aldeyjarfoss.  We provide snow shoes for the hike and we hike at our guest´s speed.

At the end of the tour it is optional to visit the Mývatn nature baths.
