In a walking distance, just in the east of the famous Skógafoss waterfall, there is a beautiful waterfall that few people visit. The name of the waterfall is Kvernufoss.
This 40 meters high waterfall can be spotted from the street, and it’s only a 10-minute walk behind the museum, but still hardly anyone goes there.
The fall is in the river Kverná tracing its origin to the south slopes of Eyjafjallajokull, and the gorge also bears the name Kvernugorge or Kvernugil. Not only is the waterfall beautiful but also the narrow gorge.
The path is a joy to walk as the whole surrounding becomes a bit isolated and quiet as you approach the waterfall. It is a combination of palagonite cliffs, rocks, and vegetation.
