Holy cow.

Ófærufoss waterfall is an extremely beautiful waterfall in the river Nyrðri-Ófæra and falls into Eldgjá canton in two cascades

Access to the canyon is a bit difficult, and the area, located in the south-east highlands is only accessible from the middle of June until late September. But if waterfalls are on your list of things to do in Iceland you don´t want to miss this one

All that power and energy, yet seemingly effortless when you witness how the horses thrive in their true element - out in the open nature. I am grateful to @horsesoficeland who unite people passionate about the Icelandic Horse and spread the love for these unique animals so that we all can experience their incredible nature

Markarfljótsgljúfur Canyon is a kind of hidden gem in the Icelandic landscape. 

This impressive canyon is not visited by many. Access to Markarfljótsgljúfur is either by a hiking trail or by a challenging and rough mountain road so it requires a well-equipped 4WD vehicle. But it´s very much worth the effort
