A beautiful waterfall located in the river Þjórsá
Urriðafoss is surrounded by a wonderful area and is a great area to experience the variety of Icelandic nature.
Power companies plan to build hydropower stations on the lower part of Þjórsá which would destroy the waterfall. Local residents in the area have been protesting in the area in an effort to save the waterfall. Hopefully we can view this magnificent area in all it's glory for a long time.
