Fardagafoss in on of many ‘second class’ of Icelandic waterfalls. Beautiful nature around it and 20 minutes long hike to it from the parking lot might be good reason for you to consider a stop here. There is even another no name waterfall along the way.
According to a legend, there is a hidden treasure in the cave behind the waterfall. No one has ever found it – yet!, so maybe it is just waiting for you!
