Iceland - Hraunfossar

Hraunfossar are a series of waterfalls that come from rivers that are flowing underneath the lava fields around  it. In Icelandic hraun means lava and fossar is waterfalls. The water joins a overground river after these magnificent waterfalls that is called Hvítá (meaning white river).

The water is glacier water and comes from the nearest glacier Langjökull  (meaning long glacier). The water has this amazing blue colour that these pictures don't show well enough and you just really want to jump in because the water looks so welcoming.

It has been super cloudy and rainy here in Iceland since I arrived, it is nice and warm today (10°C/50F) and raining! Strange for January! 

There will be a lot of more picture posts from Iceland since I will be here for 10 more days!
