Glanni Waterfall

The Glanni Waterfall on the Norðurá River is said to be the dwelling place of elves and trolls. However, during our visit, we noticed that this waterfall was situated near a golf course nearby an old lava flow (called the Grábrókarhraun lava field) and the hamlet of Bifröst. The falls was one of those wide river-type waterfalls that we saw quite a few of in the country, but this one segmented into at least three side-by-side drops as well as each one having multiple tiers.

Hredavatn

Hredavatn is a lake in West Iceland. It is located near route 1, between Borgarnes and Holtavorduheidi. Nearby is the university faculty of Bifrost and the Grábrók crater.

The lake has an area of 1,14 km², lies 56 m above sea level and its greatest depth is 20 m.

The surroundings of the lake are extremely beautiful and offer a few possibilities for hiking to charming spots such as the Grábrók crater, the waterfalls of the fine salmon river Nordurá and the lava spot Paradise near the river. According to the legends some mysterious animal or monster occupied the lake, but is rarely to be seen nowadays.

Baula

Baula is a volcanic mountain of a very special pyramidic form. It measures 934 m in height. The mountain is a 3 million years old intrusion, consisting of liparit stone.

For people in good shape, it is well possible to hike up on the mountain from Bjarnardalur, road number 60. But its sides are very steep and there are big and loose stones on the way. On the other hand, the view of the top is very rewarding and you can write into a guestbook there.
