Hike in Gufufoss, Seydisfjordur

Iceland has so many easy-to-visit waterfalls, and Fardagafoss is another addition to that list! I guess I should first say this assumes that you’ve driven the 404 miles from Reykjavík to Egilsstaðir (or flown that distance). It’s an amazing drive around Iceland’s Ring Road. But once you’re in Egilsstaðir, a charming town, you’re only a short distance from Fardagafoss. It’s just 2 miles or so outside of the town, and from the trail, you can get a great view of the town. Hard to miss when driving out of Seydisfjordur (we did not notice it on our way in). Walk up to the waterfall if you are staying in the port. It has amazing views. Steep, but steady walk up. Advise good footwear as path can be slippy underfoot, as is gravel. Worth the walk which will take you 15-20 mins at a stray pace.
