 Hjálparfoss waterfall
 
Hjálparfoss is a double waterfall that is split over two separate flumes that joins at its base.  The falls are situated in Fossá river in Þjórsádalur Valley, about 30 kilometers (19 miles) east of the village Flúðir.  The surrounding area is a remnant of various eruptions from Iceland’s most active volcanoes, Hekla.
